Natural Starch Offers Choice


For people looking for a crisp, finished look for laundered shirts, blouses, jeans, uniforms or table cloths, local entrepreneur, Obeta Osolu, has introduced a concentrated instant laundry starch that can be added directly to the rinse cycle of conventional washing machines. Peal Starch uses only pre-gelatinized starch and natural processing aids as ingredients.

“I found the number of chemicals in canned spray starches unacceptable,” says Osolu. “Not only are those chemicals getting into our environment and bodies when used, they are in contact with the garment wearer’s skin all day long. They are not necessary to give people the look they desire. Our Peal Starch formulation is convenient, offers uniform full stiffening, and cost about one half as much as spray can starch. With our product you can starch an entire load of garments at once and add appeal to your apparel without harming the Earth.”

Peal Starch is available at 4 Goodness Sake in Orefield, Bee Natural in Coopersburg, Country Harmony in Lehighton, Green Earth Natural Foods in Emmaus or by ordering online at Those interested in carrying Peal Starch in their retail store can contact All Things Sustainable at 610-421-8070.
