Do you, like me, love the crisp feel of freshly starched clothes but hate buying the never ending bottles of spray starch. When I was a child we made our own spray starch. Regular corn starch was dissolved into water and poured into a shaker. Then the starch and water solution was sprinkled onto the laundry to be ironed.
