    I was reading somewhere (on the board, I'm sure) about hints for using spray starch. I'm not a new quilter ....goes to show that we can always be learning!
    * run your iron over the fabric BEFORE you spray the starch; spray and then press as usual! It worked for me...even better results than normal.
    Thanks to who ever posted the technique the first time around! :)

    I suggest using sizing instead of starch. Starch is made from corn and the silverfish just LOOOOOVE it.

    My grandmother always did that and that is the way she taught me to starch after she started using spray starch! after she got a clothes dryer! Before that she dipped the clothes in starch water after the rinse and let dry, then sprinkle with water, put in fridge over night and then iron the next day. Whew! This was done every Monday and Tuesday. Our clothes were were so fresh and crisp. Kids clothes were heavily starched to keep the dirt from sinking in.
