Starching Clothes?

Answer

Many people starch their clothes in order to give them a clean and crisp look and feel. The most commonly starched clothing items include men's dress shirts and uniforms. Dry cleaners are some of the largest users of starch when cleaning clothes. Starching clothing first began during the 16th century. It was used because it was discovered that things such as sweat, dirt, grime and debris would attach themselves to the starch instead of the fabric and be easier to clean. Starch can be bought in the laundry section of stores for home use.
