    Lightbulb Bounce fabric spray

    I found the Bounce fabric spray at Wal-Mart.It is 16 oz. for $2 96 plus tax.There had been a coupon on them but had been removed.I asked the cashier about it and she thought it was for .25 cents off.Oh well always late.I tried it and do like it.Not as expensive as Best Press.Now think I will get 1 to add to quilt retreat door prizes.

    I found it at our local Walmart. Only three bottles so I bought all of them. I like it a lot. Same as Best Press just different scent. If you have a Tuesday Morning store in your area, I found a quart spray bottle of Linen Press for $4.99. It is for pressing sheets, etc and I can't tell a bit of difference from Best Press. It has a light clean scent. Made in France.

    Someone posted on the boards that she always cut her Mary Ellen's in half with water. I've been doing it ever since and I for one, cannot tell the difference except it goes further!

    I will be checking out the Bounce spray and Tuesday Morning! Great tips!

    I know that Bounce sheets have itty bitty bits of fiberglass in them and my daughter has sensitive skin and I don't want to be wearing fiberglass. But we have found other uses for them....
    Two things...
    1. Bounce sheets work very well to keep mice out of those stadium chairs that fit in a bag and get stored in my garage on a shelf...
    1. Where is it made? (I am trying to buy Made in America)
    I have heard that the other brand is made in America...

    Bounce spray is an ironing spray not a starch. It adds crispness to the fabric. I have big jug size refill of ME Best Press and I really like the fine spray on the Bounce better them on the Best Press bottle. I will refill the Bounce with the Best Press. I have two boxes of powder Argo starch that you boil. I need to give that a try. My mother use to use the powder starch. My gathered skirts on my dresses would stand out stiff as a board. LOL
    Got fabric?

    So the Bounce Spray has the nice stiffness effect that Best Press has?

    Are these products for pressing the quilts after you wash them? Or am I missing the point all together? LOL

    They are for giving the fabric body without the flakiness of spray starch.

    I am glad Walmart finally got it in. They told me Target carried it however the one near me didn't. It use to be called Dryel Alternitive spray or something like that. They added the Bounce scent and renamed it. I really could do without the scent myself. But if all else is the same I loved it. I will look in Tuesday Morning for the linen spray. Although I have been making my own with vodka , water and essential oils.

    diluting the Best Press to 1/2 strength with water is what was recommended by a quilt teacher I had. She uses it on the quilt backs after loading them instead of ironing the backs before loading. It works great for everything.

    I dilute the Best Press and can't tell any difference. I like the scent and the feel of the fabric. I never keep anything around long enough to attract bugs, so that hasn't been a problem.

    Red face Best press

    Did you know that you can make your own Best Press. You need a spray bottle, then you fill it up with 3 parts water and 1 part Vodka. It works like a charm. So just remember 3 to 1.

    We were laughing at Quilting you could spray one for the fabric and one for you!!! lol.

    I bought some of the Bounce. I liked it with the exception of the added scent. The coupon was for a dollar off....if you bought a dryer bar with the starch.
