General Starching Directions

Cut a piece of cardboard larger than the article to be stiffened. Cover the cardboard with clear plastic wrap.  Lay the article on the plastic, stretch out and pin into the correct shape.  Generously spray with heavy spray starch. Allow to dry completely.  This method allows for washing and re-starching whenever necessary.
