    I know I remember reading on this board of some of you buying large bottles of spray starch from Joanne's.
    I think I remember the name of it was a "Lady's Name" and you could purchase it in "gallon bottles"...
    Is this something you can only get on line through Joanne's because when I went to my Joanne's today they looked at me like I had two heads!! :(
    Please someone tell me I am not losing it yet!!??
    Thanks in advance for your help and advice.

    i can't answer your question. my psychiatrist forbids me to diagnose others. :lol:

    Mary Ellen's Best Press is the most famous of the clear, non-aerosol spray starches.

    i think you can save quite a bit if you hunt for it online. i know amazon has it available at a variety of price points - most of which are lower than the average LQS price.

    If you've lost your mind it is probably in the same place mine is. Let me know if you find them.

    I got the gallon size last week at Joann's online. It was on sale.
    Check online- I've never seen it at my Joann's in that size.

    Thanks to all of you for helping me "find my mind". I will look on line for the Mary Ellens. By the way,
    are your Joanne's stores remodeling?? Ours in AZ are and I must of walked in circles (must of been looking for my mind then too, ;-)) trying to find the notions and denim fabric.
    Geez, just when you get comfortable with how a store is laid out - they go and do something like that. Not good for my old (lost) mind. Thanks again to all of you for your suggestions, I knew I could count on getting the answers I needed!! You are the BEST!!

    I think I have bought Niagara brand of nonaerosol at the grocery store but it was a smaller bottle.

    you can get Mary Ellen's at Hancock's if there is one near you - but you can also get it on her web site in the 'laundry products section'. www.maryellenproducts.com I love this stuff - it comes with and without fragrence and ha absolutely NO residue !
