Aunt Nellie's Liquid Starch

Label from a plastic bottle from the 1960s.  
After forty-odd years under the seal of a metal cap, the product's viscosity had, uh... changed.  
Let's just say this bottle's pearly blue contents were a lumpy, gelatinous mess.
NOTE: Said mess was left to congeal in open air (atop a pile of rocks in the flea market parking lot).
