    While looking for some sta-flo starch to mix myself, I saw Niagara Non-aerosol spray starch and decided to give it a try. It is actually quite good, ozone friendly, biodegradable, 97% nature based ingredients. No flakes, nice fresh linen scent. Best of all, it got the fold marks out of my fabrics :thumbup: Bought it at Publix, our local supermarket,

    Had the flakes the first few uses, but haven't noticed them lately. I like it better than the spray cans.

    yes, I use this Niagara spray starch all the time now, love it, when I buy it, I buy 3 at a time so I don't run out!

    I buy mine at the grocery store, (Meijer) so if your grocery stores don't have it, please have them to order it

    If you let your fabrics set a few minutes so it soaks up the starch you won't have the flakes.

    I haven't seen that yet. I'll have to keep and eye out for it.

    FYI I found the StaFlo at our local Walmart. Right where it should be--under stain removers. Who would have thought it?
