    1/4 cup CHEAP vodka
    2 cups water
    a few drops of 100% essential oil (I use Lavendar)
    Mis togethter, put in a spray bottle with a fine mist spray nozzle.

    I LOVE Best Press and this is as close as you can get (MUCH less expensive) Happy Pressing!!!

    I tried this recipe and outcome was not quite stiff enough so i added a little extra vodka till I found what I was looking for.

    Oh my gosh, that's all I'd need to do. I'd be going to the big D and I don't mean Dallas! I used his beer mixed with shampoo and water one time on my lawn. I thought he'd have a stroke. Never did that again.

    Does it turn brown when you put an iron to it?

    I use vodka water mixture and do not find it to turn brown. The amount of "crispness" depends on how much vodka you pour in. Have also tried the vodka in cocktails after a long day of pressing. HA!!
