For ironing, but not for putting in the iron.

  • 100ml vodka
  • 12 drops pure lavender essential oil

Put these in a glass bottle or jar. Cap it, shake it up, and let it stand for at least 24 hours.

  • 350ml water (boiled or filtered if your tap water is hard)

Transfer to a spray bottle.

Looking after the starter

Store it in a jar with a lid but without an airtight seal. A glass Kilner jar without the rubber seal works well. Have two jars, so that you can refresh the starter in one while the other is being washed.
Keep the starter in the fridge and refresh it about once a week, ideally the day before you want to bake. If it seems to have lost its oomph, refresh it a couple of times.
