    i press the heck out of mine during the quilting. it helps me find the spots that don't lay flat naturally so i can take the sledge hammer to 'em in hopes of making them cooperate.

    i sometimes press/iron them after they've been washed, too. i know they don't stay that way, but i like how crisp and fanch-shmancy they look right after pressing.

    this from a woman who rarely makes the bed because i'll just use it again real soon. go figure. :roll: :lol:

    I never thought of ironing a quilt once it was quilted. hu... I guess I've always liked that puckered look. It's certainly something I will keep in mind if I ever need it.

    Maybe do a test spray on something small?

    Some people are highly sensitive to it.

    I've heard RUMOURS (don't know if this is really true or not) that it is harmful to pets.
    I use mine around my pets doesnt bother them.

    to wander off-topic a bit ... i use a generic version of febreeze. doesn't bother my dogs at all. (of course i don't pour it directly into their water bowls so ... :lol: )

    believe it or not, i also use it on my hair. gives it body and shine; helps it hold a curl if i spray it on before blow drying; and smells great.

    just a little factoid to file away. :wink:

    I use Fabreeze ALL the time in this house. People are always burning something and they put plastic in the fires when they burn. The smell/smoke comes right towards my house and the smell gets inside. So, out comes the Fabreeze. I use it daily just because I like the smell.

    Yes, Patrice,,,I agree with you. Why make the bed when you are going to get back into it and mess it up!!

    tlrnhi, I love all smelly things, and my cats have never been bothered by it. I have a plug in air freshener that is in the hall, just at the right height for the cats tails to brush against as they go by. So my kits always have nice scented tails when they jump on my lap and stick their bum in the air - usually by my face!

    Bearisgray, (and others with pets), I had asked our vet about Febreeze (sp) once, and he said do not use it around dogs and cats. I wish I could use it, I have heard that it smells really nice.
