Availability of Laundry Starch Powder?


It seems that the last time I needed starch powder (laundry starch) for making reagents, I bought a large enough quantity it lasted for seven years. Now I am finding that I can not purchase this item anymore. Does anyone know a source.
I do not want commercial reagent starch solutions since I have some analytical procedures that would have to be changed to accommodate differences in concentrations.

Laundry Starch


I am also looking for laundry starch powder. I remember it from years back, but do not specifically recall the manufacturer. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Ed. note: Faultless Starch / Bon Ami has a commercial division. A map at has phone numbers and email addresses for buying laundry starch.


Spectrum Chemical has 6 starch powder varieties to chose from. Laundry starch is typically corn starch, but not it would depend on the brand. For iodometry titrations you should get what is called soluble starch powder instead of laundry starch.
