    Starching Question

    How often do you recommend or when do you recommend for it to be done?

    ....Exactly how... do you starch something...?

    If you get spray starch, you just get the denim damp and spray it on (quite a bit, I understand) and it'll stiffen as it dries. I haven't really done it, so if someone who has can contribute, please do...

    I've done it on my old ola. Made absolutely no difference. Putting just plain old water would have done the exact same thing.

    Spray starch is too weak to do anything unless you use your entire can.

    The powder or liquid starches you add to a soak or your washing machine will be more effective. But over starching can be kinda dangerous. Because then if its too starched up, you won't be able to get it out without repeated washings.

    Factory starch is the best but obviously you can't get it. It's like that "new car smell" there are air freshners, but its just never the same.

    OMG

    You folded your jeans? That's it. The living indigo is now DEAD. The only thing proper move now is to burn them as a show of respect and spread the ashes around the floor of your closet.

    Does soaking RRDS stiffen it?

    Had to soak a different pair of dry selvage jeans. No detergent or anything added. Just dipped it in cold tap water for a few seconds. It was all stiff afterwards. I like that.

    Wanna maybe do the same to my nudies if it will also stiffen and not lose too much indigo.

    Got about 2 months wear on em.

    the real question is, would using the misc. question thread really hurt you (instead of making yet another topic for a small question) ;-)
