So I tried something new this morning in absence of corn starch.

* 2 cups of hot water
* 1.5 teaspoons of fine grade Tapioca starch
* 0.5 teaspoons of powdered Arrowroot
* Around ~60mL (~2 oz) of Methylated Spirits (or pure 96% ethanol)

Whacked in a mason jar and shook well. Transferred into spray bottle.

I think the quantities can be increased to get a stiffer result on the fabric, but I was being cautious in case the starches used left a white residue on my work shirt.
