    Poured Best Press into iron instead of spray bottle. Shouldn't use iron when you are half asleep. Poured it out as soon as iron cooled. Will put water in and pour out a few times before trying to steam anything. What was I thinking.

    since it's water soluble, things should be ok. you're right about not doing things while half awake, though.

    It happens... I had a friend who managed to put gasoline into her diesel car :shock: How she managed that I do not know - must have had to work at it because I'm pretty sure the pumps are different sizes to prevent this. DH was not real pleased - very expensive repair.. :hunf:

    I was AMAZED at how many men would come up to me as I filled my SUV and tell me that I was putting gas in when it should be diesel - and it does NOT take diesel.

    I have learned not to do anything fabric-related when I am tired. Too many mistakes!
