Description

Blossom Common Gloss Starch for Laundry
General Starch
2.5 oz
Cottons and Linens

We didn't give this one a specific date because we used the same recipes with the most common starches from thought out the history of starching- so when in doubt this will work for any period.

Starching began to be talked about and documented in the 17th century. This is one of the most basic types of starches which have been used for centuries. This timeless starch will meet your basic needs. Perfect for everyday starching of cottons and linens. A great finish for petticoats, collars and cuffs, shirt fronts, and the like. These starches are not specific to one time period, because they have been on hand though-out history. Starches like these would have been readily available to all housewives from the 18th century onward. This starch also includes the simplest of glossing agents, readily available. Glossing agents are designed to add a bit of shine, but more importantly they help the iron glide over fabrics that have been starched.

The tin contains enough Starch for a traditional clear starch.
The approximate 2.5 ounces of starch powder yields 2 gallons of liquid for dresses, shirtwaists, petticoats, and whatever else you might like to starch.

Directions: Grab a bowl and slowly dissolve a few tablespoons of water into the starch to make a paste. Make sure it is free of lumps. In a saucepan being 1 qt of water to a boil, slowly add paste mixture and boil for 15 minutes. Stirring constantly. This is the mixture you world from. Next, after it is cooled dilute the starch to your desired consistency. Some items require a thicker starch than others, things like petticoats, curtains would need less dilution than things like cuffs, and under-roos.
