    What type of starch do you use when pressing?

    I am having a hard time pressing out the seams of some fat quarters. I'm using the heck out of my steam button on the iron, but may have to resort to something else.

    Thanks!

    I just buy the cheapest cans of starch that I can find. Some only use Mary Ellen's Best Press.

    I mix my own:
    1 cup Sta Flo Concentrate
    1 cup water
    1 cup Fabreeze
    Put in spray bottle and starch away.

    I do the same as you, but I don't use the Fabreeze. If I want the item to be heavy starched then I change the ratio of Sta Flo to water.

    Best Press is really the best, but it is kind of pricey. It smells good too. Every scent I've tried was fabulous!
