Starch

[quote user="gosub"]I think Cooperlola is giving away her age. My mother used to tell me about "Robin" starch.[:D]

Thanks for the explanation, gosub.

I come from the generation (either that or I'm just plain lazy) who do not starch things.  We tend to go for the limp and slightly crumpled look.

I'm afraid that goes for the bedding as well.  It's kind of carefree and unrestrictive, if you see what I mean?

Coops, believe me, she didn't have rouge-gorge starch.  She had white powdered starch which she mixed with boiling water and used to rinse things like shirts and school uniforms before ironing them!

I fear that my housekeeping standards bear no discernible relation to my mother's!

[quote user="gosub"]I have to admit that it was a bit of a lie to say that my mother told me about the starch, I do remember it from my childhood.[:(]
[/quote]Me too.  In the days before viagra, it used to be the subject of some rather rude jokes..[Www]
