    I use the 505 too! There is nothing better in my opinion. Expensive yes, but well worth it!

    What kind of batting do you use when spray basting? Does it have to be cotton?

    I'm not sure it will last that long. I would try it on a sample first and make sure it doesn't stain the fabric or refuse to wash out.

    Cotton batting always works.

    Some quilters here have posted they use polyester batting and spray basting works fine for them; others say it doesn't stick well. It may depend on which basting spray is used and possibly also which brand of polyester batting is used.

    I don't remember seeing any posts about 505 not working with polyester batting, so it would probably be the best one to try if you want to use poly.

    Actually its known as freezer paper and has plastic on the back, not wax, so you can use it over and over! Was a recent post "Freezer Paper..."

    I have a question about the 505 Basting Spray, I sprayed that on my fabric, then put my what I call plastic wrap on top so I could embroidery the pattern, but now I can't even wash that spray out of the fabric. Does anyone had an idea how to get that off of the fabric? Washing it didn't work. Someone suggested using Goo-gone, what do you think?

    I used to use June Taylor all the time and was frustrated with how sticky and messy it was, as well as not letting me reposition if I ended up with creases. I picked up some Dritz brand when Joanns had it for 50% off because they were out of June Taylor and it works much better. I can reposition with little problem, it isn't tacky and the smell isn't as strong. Most people swear by 505, I've not tried it because it is so pricey, but someday I will invest. Someone recently had the web address for 505 with the giant cans for a good price but shipping was huge. Anyway dritz is now my basting spray of choice.
