Starching petticoats?

My Mom tells me stories of olden times when people used petticoats and it was common. They lay flat after a while and it's not fun at all! My favourite petti was so fluffly before and now I have to pull it out from between my legs when I walk because it's gone all soft.

So she said that they starched them when they got like that, but she has no idea just how they did it. I thought that if I just do it, it'll get white (it's black)?

I searched on google, but quite much everything was nonsense.

This site was quite good http://www.elizabethancostume.net/cordpett.html but I still feel unsure. Does anybody know anything about this or do you just throw them away and get new ones after one wash?
