    I have become a starch snob!

    A men's store gave me a bottle of this when I picked up my SIL's new shirts and I will never go back to the other brands. The main ingredient is corn starch but it sure isn't like the homemade version I've used.

    Cool! The reviews on Amazon are very positive, and the price seems quite reasonable. Think I'll be ordering some!

    It isn't very expensive but by the time I added shipping it will be too pricey for me. Glad you found a nice starch.

    I think I will be trying this - I am also going to try contacting them as they aren't too awfully far from me!

    I have a question, would the corn starch in the starch attract bugs? I remember reading somewhere to only use fabric sizing on your fabric stash as the regular starch attracts bugs. This sounds really good but I am a little apprenhensive. Anyone have any info on that?

    Bugs have to be in your house to be attracted to starch fabric. If you don't have a bug problem I don't see how starch will cause one.
