    I'm a convert too. Love the stuff. I get it at Walmart, but you can't always find it. When I do I pick up two bottles.

    This will be on the top of my list when I next head to the States. This product is not available in my part of Ontario and I can't even buy any kind of liquid starch here. The only thing I can buy is the Aerosol spray starch or Best Press. They may wonder at the border why I will have a case or two of starch to declare. I intend to share it with my quilt buddies at my Stitch and Share group.

    I make my own starch for pennies a quart...It makes the iron glide over the fabric. It has no sent unless you want it to. You can add a sent if you like. It does not flake. You can control the stiffness of the starch. I have been making this for years. I got the recipe years ago on a web site featuring Alex Anderson....

    I had never heard of it. I'm going to check for it next time I'm at Walmart. Sounds like good stuff. Thanks for all the info.

    Isn't it the husband not-finding-things normal?

    But, when I asked hubby to get it at walmart the other day, he said they didn't have it. ???
    I don't know about yours, but mine sometimes can't find milk in the grocery store either, lol

    How does it compare to the Magic Sizing for 99cents at Walmart? I love the Magic Sizing.

    *********************
    I have used Magic sizing for years and years and LOVE it!! For less than a dollar, it does the job very well. I always spray my fabric, iron it every which way, spray again, and iron again BEFORE I ever lay a ruler on to make my first cut. I have almost no shrinkage, peices go together well and I use it to lightly spray as I am setting seams. I use about a full can on an average size lap quilt.

    PS....I do NOT pre=wash but just use the Magic sizing. I did find a bottle of Bounce spray over the Memorial weekend and gave it a try. There is a LOT of fragerence and for people who don't care for smells, they would not like this!!! It was OK and now about 10 days later, the fragerence is still there!!

    I can't use things like that either.

    I just tried this today for the first time as a result of recommendations on the board. That is wonderful stuff. Worth the looking to finally find it. Smell is so pleasant and the results are so crisp.

    I can not find this in my area. I tried all the places that the website showed. I emailed them and they told me to call a phone number...that number didn't get me to anyone.... grrrr.

    I did find this website and ordered several bottles from them. http://www.laundrybagsupply.com/

    What is the price you all are paying?
