I love using starch when making my blocks. It straightens things out, makes the fabric stiff as a board and when I square them up, they have crisp, clean, sharp-as-a-knife edges...but I hate spraying the starch. What's with those cans of spray starch anyway? They never work right. The starch will come blasting out in the beginning, but quickly ends up just dribbling on the fabric in slow motion. I've tried taking the nozzles off and washing them out, using a pin to open up the hole, lined them up with the red dot, shake, shake shaken the cans...nothing keeps those cans spraying smoothly. I'd go buy liquid starch and put it into a hand sprayer, but they don't carry it around here and, DARN, I want to win this battle with the aerosols!
