Subject: Spray starch

Spray starch

From: Cathy Atwood <catwood>
Date: Tuesday, March 23, 1999
A local historical society was given a number of white cotton
garments from early this century.  The donor had the items dry
cleaned, and then applied spray starch.  Should the historical
society wash the garments to remove the starch, or can they go into
storage? They have good storage containers and a proper environment.
Thanks for whatever advice you can offer,

Cathy Atwood
