Removing Starch from Cotton/Poly Blend Shirts

Question: How do you remove commercial application laundry starch from 60/40 cotton/poly blend shirts? They’ve been laundered several times and the starch remains. Is there something that will neutralize it?s

 

 

Answer: The sizing or starch should have washed out even using home-style laundry detergents. If the item is white and can be bleached try bleaching at 1.5 times the amount you would normally use, and use hot water for the washing with warm rinses. For colored items, let the textile soak in a warm bath of detergent for a few hours and wash as you normally would. Both starch products and sizing products are water soluble, so they should be removed generally quite easily.
