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

      Fill mouth full then spit slowly at material.

        Drop the snark, please! A heavy starch might clog a spray bottle. Therefore, a sprinkler bottle might work better in this case.(that’s what our great grandparents used) You can make your own or buy one.
