Make Your Own Spray Starch!

I actually haven’t tried using this yet, just looked it up today.  I was ironing and was running low on spray starch which made me think that I could probably make this myself  instead of adding this to my Wal-Mart list.


  • 1 heaping tablespoon corn starch (I’m out of corn startch so I used tapioca flour)
  • 1 pint cold water
  • 1-2 drops essential oil (optional)


1. Combine the cornstarch and water in a bowl, and stir until the cornstarch is completely dissolved. (The mixture will be milky in color)

2. Add in a couple drops of essential oil for fragrance, if desired.

3. Then, transfer to a spray bottle, and use.


1. For best results, shake before each use.

2. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly.
