Default No More Bounce Spray Starch - What is like it?

I just discovered that Bounce Spray starch was discontinued last year...I had stock piled it and am just running out...I loved this stuff!

So what do you use instead that doesn't leave sticky residue or flakes?

Niagra startch cheap a lot of us Canadians buy lots as we can`t get it here.
Bought some stay flo also. Want to dilute it. Have a? When I mix it does the water go funny? or does the startch keep it okay?

I use the liquid sta-flo at a 50/50 mix in a cheapie refillable spray bottle. I only mix up about a cup at a time as I'm a sporadic sewer. I spray the fabric until it's rather damp and lrt soak into the fabric for a minute or two and then iron. I have no issue with flakes or residue. And it's way cheaper than any of the commercially available spray starches.

I liked it too but found the scent bothered my asthma. Might be the reason it was pulled?

I stock piled the Bounce also. I've got 15 bottles in the cupboard. Not looking forward to the day I pull that last bottle out . . .

I'm practically hooked on the Niagra in the spray bottle. Original scent. I don't know if it is a memory that I'm remembering or what it is. But I love the smell. Sometimes when things are discontinued they will show up at Big Lots if one is nearby.

I also have a supply of Bounce spray and found I like the new Flatter spray better. I love the name too.
