Default Starch not in spray can

Where do you find starch that is in a bottle, not in a spray can?

I buy Sta Flow in a gallon Jug at Walmart and mix half water and half starch in a spray bottle. This works fine for me.

I have picked up starch in a pump bottle at Walmart. I have seen both Niagara brand like this and Faultless brand.

Walmart on line has loads of choices, including best press.

Unlike Suzanne, my experience with making my own with stay flo is the pump bottle gets gummed up and doesn't work. I plan on reusing the pump bottle from the starches I bought pre-made to give it another try.

I use the aerosol Faultless and Niagara. I also use Sta Flo concentrate when I want heavier starch. Argo powered starch is great for saturating the whole piece of fabric. I like Magic Sizing better then Best Press. All are at Walmart here.

I get the niagra in a spray bottle (non-aerosol) and then refill with sta-flo gallon mixed roughly 1/3-1/2 starch to rest water. Works well for me.

This is what I use as well. Usually purchase at Walmart also but sometimes they are out. I have also found a different brand at my local grocery store in the laundry product aisle.

I also picked up a generic spray bottle at Walmart in the garden section for about $1 and just mix a small amount at a time.

I can't find a spray bottle, even the non aerosol starch spray bottles, that give a good coverage. I get a lot of wet spots and dry spots. I'm always testing spray bottles. Haven't found one yet I like for starch.

I just stick with Best Press. Most of the time I use 50/50 with water.
