    Personally, I spray/soak the right side of the fabric, wad it up, put it in a plastic bag for at least 2 hours, overnight is preferable, take it out and either damp dry in the dryer or lay it out on the table/ironing board, then iron.

    Either side. I usually spray the back if the fabric is really dark. I use the startch thats not suppose to flake but just want to be sure.

    I spray Mary Ellen's on both sides, but I don't soak the fabric. Then, I roll it up and set it aside for about an hour, open it up, and iron it dry. Works for me...

    I love this site, there are so many knowledgeable people on here. I was going to ask the same question, but now I don't have to. Thanks.

    I just saw another thread on Niagara non-aerosol starch and she said it doesn't flake. I bought some the other day at Kroger but haven't used it yet.

    I spray either side and let it completely dry before pressing.
    I usually don't get any flakes this way :D:D:D
