Light Coat of Starch Fends Off Wilt, Dirt and Smudges on Accessories The koala of Australia never drinks but gets .enough moisture from young eucalyptus leaves ~" which he lives. Lorraine Browning, New York actress, dips cotton lace collar and cuffs of her while trept blouse into a lijht starch balh. that rives (rills a longer lease on freshness. By Alicia Hart A hot summer's day at the office may "take the starch out of you" but It won't take the starch out of your frilly collar and cuff sets If you iron in that stiffening the night before. A little cold-water starch goes a long way toward keeping young career girls In spanking white, flower-fresh accessories. The smooth surface that light starch adds to lingerie frills helps them to rtfslst dirt. It's a well-known fact that a starched lace collar and cuffs go twice as long unwilled and nnsmndged ns their cotton mates that don't get crisped up. Try this same starch trick on fancy lace-edged gloves, eyelet petticoat flounces, organdy ruffs and jabots. Put a light starch over last summer's cotton bathing suits and dirndles that came out of winter storage looking hopelessly limp and wilted. Play suits, shorts and halter tops can be spruced up like new by simply starching their ruffles and pleats. Cotton batiste blouses respond to the starch treatment by fluffing up like organdy and » plain full cotton petticoat can be starched to rustling glamor for wear under a summer sheer. A little starch at the collar of your washable summer suit will keep It tailor- trim.
