Day 189: Pressing Business

Today I stopped at the store on my way home from work and bought some spray starch. After dinner, I got busy spraying and pressing the strip sets from yesterday. I’d show you a picture, but they look pretty much like they did yesterday.

I actually own two irons, but I rarely use them on clothes. This is the first time I’ve used starch (that I can remember). I think I’m going to reserve the older iron (the one I’ve been using the past few weeks) for starching, and I’ll use the newer one for everything else.

The can of starch I bought said that it was “premium”, “professional” starch, and that it wouldn’t flake or leave white spots on dark fabric. It also said that it would let the iron glide over the fabric.

The can lied.

But hey, for $1.74, I’m not going to send it back. It would cost me more in shipping than that. Besides, maybe I was using it incorrectly. Who knows?

Either way, the strip sets are now ready to cut into triangles. I hope to start that tomorrow night. For now, it’s late, I’m tired (mostly because I stayed up way too late last night), and I’m heading to bed.
