• MYO Heavy Spray Starch

    Bottles of Spray starch are sold at stores for more than $2.50 per bottle! Did you know that you can make your own heavy duty spray starch for under .20 cents ?! Here's a simple, do it yourself recipe.

    1/4 c. Corn Starch
    1/2 c. Cold water
    1 qt Boiling Water

    Dissolve the cornstarch in the cold water, stirring well. Pour dissolved starch mix into boiling water, bring to boil, cook 2 minutes over medium heat. Remove from heat, cool. This makes a Heavy Starch, great for laundry or crafts.

    If you
    plan on storing this for any length of time, add 1 Tbs. of Lemon Juice as a preservative. It will prevent spoilage/mold.

      Forgive me for asking. Just starting to use this website. Are you placing this in a spray bottle for use?
