    Dry iron if I'm ironing fabric or pressing seams, but if I'm ironing fabric I'll spritz it with water from a spray bottle. I don't use water to press seams. The water bottle helps me avoid putting water in my iron. Kind of a pain when I have to press seams and still have water in my iron and have to empty out the water.

    I use either spray starch or sizing and/or dry or steam depending on the fabric. I also have a spray bottle but prefer the instant steam from my steam iron. I would not use steam or water on bias cut of fabric.

    Best Press is by Mary Ellen's and they call it the clear starch alternative. You spray it on the fabric and it helps remove wrinkles, helps make ironing smoother, doesn't leave flakes. I get it at my LQS or JoAnn's.
    Yes, I googled it. I see that it would be better then starch since there is no flaking. Thanks for explaining what it is.

    New to quilting and I have started my experience using a dry iron and a spray bottle filled with good ole water.
