    What is the best basting spray other than 505?

    I need one that will wash out and doesn't smell too bad. I've got a VERY sensative nose.

    I'm out of the 505, and as much as I use, I'd like to find some a little less expensive.

    Thanks

    Becareful with June Taylor if you a smell senative. That spray is good but smells like rubber cement to me.

    I got a little can of June Taylor when I was at Joanns. It worked great...if I would have had it quilted in 2 days. I'm glad i pinned too otherwise I would have had a big problem on my hands. A friend uses spray adhesive instead of spray basting...but I don't know the difference.

    Is the spray adhesive Permanent? The spray basting washes out.

    I got some at Wal-Mart. Only sprayed a little, set it aside and walked out of the room. I don't remember it being this bad. Will have to do a little at a time. It wasn't 505 or June Tailor. Just said Quilting Spray.

    I used spray adhesive, Sluyter feather spray 470, and it RUINED MY QUILT!!!!! Do NOT use this one. I like the 505, but I'm interested to see what other ppl are suggesting, since I don't like the price of the 505.

    I have used June Taylor in a WELL VENTILATED area!
    Will be trying it again soon in a not so well ventilated area. Will let you know how it works! (smells - I too am sensitive to obnoxious smells) :?
