Where can I find liquid starch? Zip code for my area is:76013.
By Mary from Arlington TX
I went to the Walmart website, typed your zip code into the store locater and found that the Walmart store below has Sta Flo Liquid Starch, 64 oz. size in stock. According to the site, this store isn't far from your home, but I assume that all or most Walmarts carry liquid starch.

You can also make your own. Dissolve 1 T. of corn starch in a little cold water, then add to 2 cups of boiling water, stir until thickened. If it is too thick, just add some water. Keep refrigerated when not in use.
All the starch info is for American addresses - does anyone in Calgary, Alberta Canada sell liquid starch?
Try this page on Amazon Canada. https://www.ama efix=liquid+star
I do not believe you will find liquid starch for sale in Canada and most stores (including Amazon I believe) will not ship this item. Liquid starch products are made in the US and it does not appear anyone ships to Canada. Probably because it is a very low priority sale item.
Here is a link to a site that gives instructions on how to make your own - so maybe that is the way to go.

Where can I get liquid starch?

Where can I find this liquid starch I keep hearing about on here? I've been to several of my local craft shops (Hobby Lobby, JoAnns, and AC Moore), they did not have it, let alone know what I was talking about. Please let me know where I can get it. I found several neat ideas on here that require the starch.

Look in your grocery store in the laundry aisle. I used it a lot when I was a preschool teacher many years ago! (03/27/2008)

Thanks for all the responses. I found it at Walmart in with the spray starch. Now I can get on with my life, and figure out what project I am going to use. Thanks for all the help. I will post my finished project once I figure out what I'm going to do. Thanks again. (03/31/2008)
I found it in Dollar Tree for $1. (09/28/2008)
Smart & Final stores have the liquid starch you're looking for at a great price. Not unlikely for you to find it at a typical grocery store. Worked great for my super starched Halloween costume! (10/22/2008)
You can make it yourself from the common dry cornstarch found in the baking sections:
Yes, you can starch clothing with regular corn starch. In a large bowl or pot, stir 1/2 cup of corn starch into 1 cup of cold water. Stir in boiling water (2 quarts for a heavy solution; 4 quarts for medium and 6 quarts for a light solution). Dip the clothing into the starch solution and let dry. To iron, sprinkle the garments lightly with warm water, roll up and place in a plastic bag until evenly moistened, then iron as usual. (02/22/2009)

Where can I purchase liquid starch in my area? Zip code 32976
By Christine from Sebastian, FL
I would try a large supermarket or even Walmart. I bought a bottle in Walmart many years ago. If you cannot find it there, check with your local fabric stores, they might know. (07/21/2010)
You can make it so cheaply. Just take 2 cup water and 1 Tablespoon corn starch. Bring to a boil, stirring all the while. Thin out as needed, with more water. I use this for paper mache, but it could be used in a spray bottle if thinned out enough after cooking. (07/22/2010)
You can probably find it at any large grocery store. (07/22/2010)
