Starch is a chemical liquid laundry solution that is used to stiffen fabrics. Sta-Flo concentrated liquid starch can be used to starch your clothing, table cloths, curtains and other fabric craft projects. According to Sta-Flo, the concentrate has been formulated in a way that allows the iron to move easier over the starched fabric and makes the fabric wrinkle-resistant for a professional finish. Starch your clothes or fabric with Sta-Flo concentrated liquid starch and give them a smooth, neat appearance.

Step 2

Fill the spray bottle half-way with Sta-Flo liquid starch. Add water to the bottle and fill the bottle the rest of the way up. If you aren't comfortable with eyeing the measurements, add 1 cup Stay-Flo liquid starch and 1 cup water to the spray bottle.

Step 3

Put the spray gun top back onto the spray bottle and screw it on tight. Shake the bottle to mix the starch concentrate with the water.

Step 4

Spray an even layer of the watered down starch concentrate onto a garment or fabric craft. Spray on enough starch to make the liquid fully soak the fabric. Set the wet starched fabric down onto the ironing board and press it flat with a hot iron.


Handle hot irons with care as they can burn.
