My father in law recently retired, and gave me 40 very nice long
sleeve collared dress shirts.
Unfortunately, he had them bizarrely overstarched - with, I believe, a
chemical starch. I took them to my drycleaner who kept them for two
weeks soaking them in stuff to try to get the starch out, but they've
just come back like cardboard. He says there's nothing he can do.
Does anyone out there know how I can get the starch out? I have
enough shirts that I could certainly experiment on a few. I assume
I'd use some kind of enzyme that would feed on the starch, but I'm
clueless as to what might work. Is this what liquid fabric softener
