When in doubt, spray starch it out. Sadly, no matter how much you care for linen, once you get on with your day and life starts to happen, the fabric will inevitably wrinkle. And that’s where spray starch comes into play. In a YouTube video by Grae Cove, the clothing brand recommends consumers use starch spray or wrinkle-release fabric spray in wrinkle-prone areas, including the knees, elbows, and crotch areas, to ensure that the linen stays wrinkle-free longer.
And if you’re worried about all the added alcohol and chemicals from the commercial brands, you can always make your own. According to quiltmaker Fallon Caldwell, you only need two tablespoons of cornstarch, two cups of water, and a spray bottle. “It is actually really, really easy to make your own spray starch, and you can save a decent amount of money too by making it yourself,” she explained in a YouTube video on her channel.
