    Does this really work? Really??? Personally, I can't think of a better way to use vodka, nasty stuff!!

    hmmmm.....gonna have to research this one.... I bought the Sta-Flo but it flakes and I don't like that end result... Ellen's Best Starch is great but too expensive for my budget...Like the Vodka but reallly?????

    Ive been doing this for years.. I just allow it to dry some before I iron to avoid flakes but if its on the wrong side of the fabric then the flakes don't matter much to me.. But then again I wash my quilts so the flakes will wash away- So either way if it flakes its not a big issue for me..
