    Cornstarch is loved by bugs, that is why you are advised if you live in a buggy area not to use starch. It will eat into your fabric to get the starch and cause damage to your fabric. That is why I like Mary Ellens, it doesn't have anything in it to attract bugs.

    Here's the recipe that I was given.

    24 oz distilled water
    3 oz vodka
    1 teaspoon scented oil(optional)

    Use cheap vodka and shake before using.

    I haven't made any yet, but friends have.

    Note: Remember to use the vodka for the starch.......LOL
