I've looked online and discovered you can either cook up a batch of starch/water or sugar/water.
It's mom's hand crocheted doily and I would like to put it to use but I never saw how she starched it.
Have you ever done this? Is one method better than the other. If so, how did you do it?
You can use all ready starch (store bought). Mom had these white , trimmed in green, doilies and she made the stove starch. How I hated those things.!!! lol Now I wish I had a set. It was part my job when she re-starched them to go out and 'pull' the point up every 10-15 minutes until they were dry. They were beautiful. She would get a sweet potato going and set in the middle of one. All those green leaves. Memories.
But yes, I would use the boiled starch. Sugar/water draws ants, but works as good as boiled starch treatment.This message has been edited. Last edited by: granny3641,
