How to make the perfect spray starch for ironing clothes

Is it important to you to look your best? Do you enjoy looking fresh and clean?  Not only is using Simpli Starch® much more economical than using other pre-mixed spray starches, but it lasts much longer. SIMPLI STARCH® IS GREAT FOR TRAVEL OR TO USE AS A SPRAY STARCH REFILL. You’ll marvel at the results.  

Below is a list of all the benefits of using spray starch when you iron:

1. Makes ironing faster & easier
Simpli starch is an instant laundry starch powder that gives you the flexibility to make your own heavy, medium, or low ironing spray starch solution. Our starch formula helps your iron glide faster and softer and “sets” the fabric, so you don’t have to iron over the same spot as many times.

2. Helps your fabric look crisp & polished
Using Starch provides a noticeable difference between a professionally laundered shirt and one that’s been cleaned and ironed at home.

3. Starch Keeps wrinkles out longer
Compared to alternative laundering methods like steam, starch is better at helping you maintain a freshly ironed look throughout the day.

4. Protect fabric from stains
Our Starch provides a barrier between fabric and dirt or sweat, causing dirt to stick to the starch instead of the fabric. This makes it easier for these stains to wash out.

5. Starch Extends the life of the fabric
A common misconception about starch is that it can degrade fabric over time. However, starch actually can extend the life of fabric by preventing fraying and lessening the need for harsh, heavy-duty cleaning products in your laundry routine.

 All Things Needed (Ingredients):

  • Spray bottle 
  • Water (Hot tap water for best results)
  • Simpli Starch®



  1. Fill the spray bottle with cold water.
  2. Add 2-parts Simpli Starch® to 16 parts water to make full strength spray starch.
  3. Shake the bottle vigorously until completely mixed (leave space for mixing).
  4. Fill up to 22-parts water for medium strength starch or as desired. Shake well before each use.
  5. IRON LIKE A PRO: For superior results evenly spray the inside of the entire fabric, flip back to the exterior to iron. For additional stiffness spray the exterior of the fabric and iron again.
  6. For best results, iron at recommended heat settings (low to medium heat). Always allow spray starch to fully absorb into the fabric for a few minutes before ironing.

    Prep Time: 3 minutes to mix Simpli Starch® in a spray bottle.
