Your grandma knew what she was doing by keeping a can of spray starch next to the ironing board. She knew that spray starch keeps your clothes looking new – it’s the starch that performs. But grandma might not have known that Faultless Starch has several other resourceful uses! Let’s explore 7 creative hacks using Faultless Premium Starch. Also be sure to enter the fun giveaway at the end of this post for your chance to win a $25 Visa Gift Card, three cans of Faultless Premium Starch, hot iron cleaner, and Ironing board cover! Scroll to the bottom to enter and keep reading to discover my spray starch beauty hack!
1. Use Faultless Premium Starch to keep sneakers cleaner longer.
Spray a few coats of Faultless Premium Starch on canvas shoes to repel dirt and keep them looking cleaner longer. Unlike other starch, the Faultless Premium bottle won’t clog, flake or spot so you can trust it on your cute tennies.
2. Use Faultless Premium Starch as a dry shampoo in a pinch.
I first saw this beauty hack listed in a popular lifestyle magazine and thought it was brilliant! The active ingredient in most dry shampoos is starch, so it makes sense that you can use a can of spray starch to achieve similar results. Simply hold the can of Faultless Premium Starch about six inches away from your scalp and spray any greasy areas. Allow the starch to dry and style as normal.
3. Use Faultless Premium Starch to create impressive napkin folds.

The trick to achieving a picture-perfect napkin is in using a well-starched napkin! I recently showed you how to create this cute napkin tie, but what I forgot to mention is that a freshly starched napkin is so much easier to fold! Spray Faultless Premium Starch on your linens and iron before you begin any fancy folding.
4. Use Faultless Premium Starch on table linens to create a beautiful and easier-to-clean tablescape.
It doesn’t matter how lovely your table decor and dishware, if your linens are wrinkled your tablescape will look subpar. Use spray starch when ironing your table linens to ensure a polished look that will be easier to clean! Spilled wine, gravy drips, and food splatters wash out more easily from starched linens.
5. Use Faultless Premium Starch to hack your ironing time.
I know there are a few of you lucky rare birds out there who adore ironing, but the rest of us would like to get it over with as quickly as possible! Faultless Premium Starch reduces the time it takes for you to iron your clothes and linens by quickly releasing the wrinkles. Hack your ironing time with spray starch and see the difference for yourself!
6. Use Faultless Premium Starch as a temporary fabric adhesive to cover walls, doors, bookcases, and more.

If you want the look of wallpaper, without the fuss of stenciling, or the permanency of pasted paper, then this hack is for you! Use spray starch to hang fabric (preferably bed sheets or other thin fabric) to create removable “fabric wallpaper” that adheres well to any completely flat and clean surface. Liberally spray starch on the your desired surface area and then on your fabric. Position the fabric into place and use a straight edge to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles. Cut the excess fabric away with a rotary cutter and allow the fabric to dry.
7. Use Faultless Premium Starch to stiffen paper crafts.

There are myriads of fun crafts you can make using spray starch. Check out the Faultless Tips & Tricks website for several fun ideas. One way I like to use spray starch is to preserve 3D paper crafts. I made these easy paper towel flowers and stiffened them for more durability using a few light coats of Faultless Premium.
