    I've been to my two local (Giant Eagle) large grocery stores and Target, can't find Spray Starch. I'm in SW Pa any ideas? :hunf:

    I got mine at Costco but I've seen it at Walmart. It's usually in the laundry section. Walmart had about 5 or 6 different brands. Good luck!

    Yes, Walmart had several kinds. Am told Joann's has some, but it's way overpriced.

    I have trouble finding spray starch too so it is not just a Pa problem. We have a armed forces' base on the way to my daughter's college. That town's grocery stores have lots of spray starch at the best price I've ever seen. Those poor soldiers must have to press their dress uniforms. I just stop and stock up on Easy Press at $2.29 (Canadian) a can. However, I've yet to find a source for a large bottle of liquid fabric starch even when checking large grocery stores and Walmart. Either it just isn't available in Canada or nobody buys it anymore. No liquid Niagara Starch or Staflo anyplace! Maybe I'll have my DH smuggle me some back across the border when he goes to Washington in a couple of weeks. It might make the border guards really wonder!

    I was looking for liquid starch in the grocery store and happened upon a non-aerosol Niagra starch that says it doesnt' flake. I haven't tried it yet - has anybody else?

    I'm also in SW PA, and I have found spray starch at Giant Eagle, Foodland, Family Dollar, Walmart, Dollar General....but I don't think any store sells the big bottles of liquid starch that I remember seeing long ago. THAT is what I have been looking for.

    Haven't seen liquid starch here for a long time. I buy the spray cans at Costco.

    I get the concentrated gallon and mix my own 50/50. It's a whole lot cheaper and it's not an aerosol.
