    I LOVE Best Press and this is as close as you can get (MUCH less expensive) Happy Pressing!!!
    Would that work on cloths that you wear?

    I don't see why it wouldn't work on clothes. Might not be as stiff as real starch, but that might be a plus.

    Oh y'all just crack me up!!!!!

    I have been laughing so hard over the posts you have been
    making. TO the point that last night laying in bed reading the
    posts and laughing my hubs (who has to get up at 4am) told
    me to either leave the room to laugh, meaning go to my desk
    in the living room, or be quiet and stop laughing.

    I chose to stop reading the funny posts and went to another
    post to do some reading.

    But I am back to reading the funny comments y'all are leaving.

    Makes me glad I'm a tee totaler (spelling?) or there may not be any quilting being done. LOL. I'll be the only one on the QB with a clear head. There could be a lot of wonky quilts out there if ya'll don't put down the vodka & get back to business. HeeHee!! I do have a serious question about the recipe. Is the essential oil really needed or is it just to make it smell pretty? Cheers!!

    It is NOT required to use the essential oil. It is ONLY if you want
    a nice fragrance.

    I purchased sunny citrus, linen and Caribbean ocean scents and
    have used the citrus only scent so far.


    But it is totally optional for scent.
