Ahhh…the good old days:)
Oh, dear….it’s 3 3/4 cup. I’m going to fix that right now.
LOL…I can’t say that I’ve ever tried ironing lace curtains. Truth be told, I’ve never ironed any type of curtain. I remember my grandmother’s ironing curtains and sheets. Heck, my grandmother, still to this day, irons my grandfathers boxers and t-shirts.
Someone asked me this very question before and I did a little research and discovered that it can be used for fabric on walls.
Thank you for visiting. I’ll visit your site to see how the testing came out.
Yes, I use it just as I would when if I had purchased starch from the store. I just spray on the clothes and iron as normal. I’m not sure about actually using it in the laundry and what the ratio would be, but you piqued my curiosity and will definitely have to play around with it and come up with an answer for you.
Yes, Rose…this really works. The key is to “boil” the water and to make sure the cornstarch is completely dissolved. You should end up with a very clear liquid.
Lime juice…what a great idea! Thank you for the tip.
Diana, I’ve tried it both ways and boiling the water first is so much better. When I tried it without boiling, the water was milky looking and clogged up my spray bottle. Even when I used the hottest water possible from my sink, it still came out milky and had to be shaken quite a bit before each use. Now, I do still shake, but it’s more out of habit than out of necessity.
@Heidi – Yes. You can also use vinegar.
Thanks for stopping by.
@Alison – Thanks for letting me know how this worked for you and for following.
@comforting – I mainly spray around my doors and windows sills to keep the bugs out. Also, before I sit out on the balcony, I give it a good spraying. Other than outside bugs trying to get in, I don’t have a problem with pests, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate using it around the kitchen, bath, baseboards, etc.
Thanks for visiting the site.
@Betty…LOL! I wish I could help you out with how not to get the ring. I guess just cutting off the collars of our shirts altogether.
@Desiree…I’m so glad you liked the carpet freshener. Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you around again.
@Connie, the difference with using the Oxy-Clean is that the clothes seem to come out whiter and brighter. Without it, my whites were clean, but they didn't have that bright white look that I love. I guess I should go back and edit my post, huh?
@Aiden, I order my scented oil from candlepro.com. As for the the soap, I purchase mine at the grocery store in the laundry aisle. If you can't find it, try using Ivory. I hear that works really well. I plan on trying it myself.
@Amber – Thanks for following.
@Alyssa…Truthfully speaking, I didn’t have a clue about slime, however, I searched around on Google and it looks like the ingredients are the same, minus the fragrance. Only thing is, the ratio of cornstarch to water is different.
Here’s a link to a few recipes I found for slime recipes at the Kids Party Paradise site.
Hope this helps.
No, Brother Derek. You take them out, but I suppose it wouldn’t hurt anything if you left them in there:)
Hi Elizabeth. This will last as long as a box of baking soda is supposed to last, about 30 days. I've actually kept mine in the fridge longer. In fact, I think I'm pushing two months now. I know it's about time to change it, but it hasn't quite made its way to the top of my to-do list yet.
@ Jennifer…I've kept mine for months without any problem. I've never used lemon in mine, only essential oils. They can also be used as a preservative.
@Elizabeth…Yes, this is a very low sudsing formula and safe for HE washers.
Thanks for visiting.
You can pretty much use whatever you like, although I'm not too sure about color care. I personally like to use either VO5 or Suave because they can normally be purchased for less than a dollar and they work well. I like to save the "good stuff" for my hair.
Thanks for commenting.
Adri, thank you for stopping by and commenting. It's so nice to know that others appreciate my recipes. If you come across any that you think may be beneficial to this site, please feel free to share.
It is an awesome tip. It also works well on bathroom sinks.
