How to produce cold water starch in Nigeria

The production of starch is gotten from juicy cassava which is used in laundry and treatment of fabrics.

Even though laundry starch has been on for several decades, only recently did the cold water starch emerge. The variety of starch found in the marketplace includes packaged spray starch and the dry powder starch prepared with hot water. The cold water starch is a new innovation which allows people to use it on fabrics without requiring hot water.

All you need do is add the amount of starch you need in a proportionate amount of water either cold or hot, wait for a little for the starch to dissolve and then stir to mix very well, then put the fabric or cloth you wish to starch and then dry.

Cold water starch is a lucrative business and it is expanding year by year and the best part is that it is not capital intensive.
