    I saw on here where someone said to use Bubble Jet Set to set the colors when you print a picture on fabric using your home printer. Does anyone know where to find this? I've looked at several web sites, but none seem to know what I'm talking about. Do I have the name right?

    I got this a few years ago. Bubble Jet Set 2000 and Bubble jet Rinse.

    You can also buy pretreated sheets of fabric and do not need these chemicals.

    Check with your local Kmart, they sell the wash and the rinse on their website, I don't know if they sell it in store or not though.

    Thanks. We no longer have a Kmart anywhere near here,but I could go on their website. I bought some of the pretreated sheets, but they are kind of expensive for doing a lot of pictures. I saw a video on You Tube, don't remember the name now, but the lady said you could make your own pretreated sheets from muslin, etc. Thought that might be the way to go. Thanks again for the info.

    If you are doing alot of printing be sure to get a good quality (tighter weave fabric) for this. The pictures will greatly benefit. You will save alot of money treating your own fabric and its very easy. What liquid you dont use, put back in the bottle to use next time.

    Yes, thank you. I saw in that video, who's name I can't remember, was that you can reuse the leftover solution. That is a money saver. As for the fabric, I saw that the pretreated ones I bought were 200 thread count pima cotton. Figured I'd try to find some of that when I go to make my own sheets. Thanks for all the help. I'm hoping to make a memory quilt for my daughter, because she loves scrapbooking.

    I also use the Bubble jet rinse after the photos have been printed and dried. It really does make a difference.

    I bought mine on ebay.
