That is why our cleaning company shares tips on how to dress the fabric at home.
The simplest and most affordable method is starching the fabric after washing. The most effective are cotton and linen. They are difficult to perfectly iron and after they easily crumple again. If, however, to starch such a thing, a very thin film forms on it, which solidifies under the action of a hot iron, perfectly smooths the surface of the fabric and gives a fine well-groomed luster.
The starch finish is based on a paste, which is isolated from potato or corn starch. It is easy to prepare yourself, for this you need to carefully stir a teaspoon of starch in a small amount of cold water. After a thin trickle the resulting mixture pour into boiling water and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Creating a gruel in cold water, you will avoid the formation of lumps. The more minutes the starch will be boiled, the thicker it will be.
