    If an inflatable is only sagging a little you can be selective, but I usually spray the entire figure. My thinking is that if you do see a difference in color because of the starch, it will at least be consistent.
    You can use most anything that will fill the fabric pores. In one case I went as far as using clear spray paint. It gave me a noticably shiny surface in daylight, but didn't look bad when lit at night.

    I used spray glue on my Winnie The Pooh and Tigger inflatables a few years ago. It took a couple of tries but they inflate nicely now. I turned each one of them on, reached my hand through the zipper with a can of spray glue and tried to hit the areas I thought were leaking more. I also sprayed glue in the middle and let it leak through the fabric. It's messy
    and I should have worn respiratory and skin protection. Some of the glue gets through the small holes and onto your clothes, skin, etc. After the application I let them run for a few days to make sure the glue was dry. I only use 2 inflatables for Christmas and those usually run 24x7.

    I have a pair of 2003 Gemmy 12.5 foot inflatables that just won't stand up. The fans are large and blow very strong but both are limp noodles. I took the best one and treated all the seams with gooey tent seam sealer and then sprayed the entire inflatable from the inside with silicone waterproofer and nothing. I'd really like to get these working again if there is any way possible as they are of a fantastic design. Any other ideas anyone could share? I tried to add a second but smaller fan and it made absolutely no difference.

    If the fans are strong you are obviously losing air somewhere. Sealing the seams and coating the fabric usually solves that problem.
    I can only suggest powering up then going over the inflatable inch by inch feeling for any large unexpected airflow then resealing those areas as needed.
