Commercial Laundry Starch Removal  Anyone out there with shirts that are "glued shut" because of starch build  up? After using the same commercial laundry for 5 years and always asking  for "light" starch-I've been told that the starch has actually turned into a  type of glue. The proprietor confessed that someone obviously had put more  starch than necessary into my husbands shirts...and now he can't push his  arms through the sleeves and trying to wear the thing makes him sound as if 2  cats are playing in a thick new brown paper bag. How is it best to remove  this built-up starch? Help! STAT!  Thanks!  Desperate in West Tennessee!  Reply  (Ref:0449)
