Always they ask me when I go to Dry Cleaners.
Do I want then starched or not?

Only if you don’t want wrinkles.
Starch. Crisp, neat. Extra starch.
So why do they ask me then? Why not just put starch on them automatically?
We don’t have a dry cleaners for miles and miles and miles. They went the way of the knee high panty hose in Walmart. . .just can’t find one.
Starch looks better. No starch feels better. It’s your call.
And remember: it is better to look good than to feel good, as Billy Crystal once said.
Its a personal dress preference.
However only 100% cotton shirts will starch well.
Stupidest thing Ive ever seen posted on FR.
It is your Laundry that is asking. You are not getting you sorts dry cleaned.
“So why do they ask me then? Why not just put starch on them automatically?”
A. Some people don’t like starched shirts ( they tend to look like slobs)
B. Some people buy permanent press shirts (cotton-polyester blends which don’t take starch well), but send them out to be laundered.
starch, starch, and more starch. I dropped my shirts 5 or 6, covered in plastic on hangers while walking back to the car. They stood up in the parking lot.
starch them until they scream.
Havent used a dry cleaner in decades.
Lestoil wash and low heat dryer.
Only thing that gets the grease out.
I light starch new shirts.
When theyre getting aged, no starch.
Im a woman BTW but Id suggest this generally. I like to keep my clothes a looong time.
Not even close. In fact Sam himself has posted stupider as have many of us.
thats actually saying quite a lot.
Im a no starch guy.
Totally personal preference IMO.
I’ve been getting no starch on my shirts. It does feel more comfortable wearing shirts with no starch. So just curious on why starch is such a thing.
