    Red face Bounce ironing spray is wonderful!

    Picked some up on the weekend, used it while pressing both quilt blocks and shirts. It made the iron glide so nicely on the fabric, not to mention the very pleasant scent. I am going to pick up another bottle when I am out again. Wonderful stuff for sure. I like it better than Mary Ellens Best Press.

    Have never used the Best Press but am very happy with the Bounce Spray as suggested earlier on QB. Obviously, the price is much more reasonable. Any time you can save some pennies, it means more money towards fabric! Kind of a win/win

    I was very pleased as well with this product.

    I went over to the bounce site and put in my zip and found it at tons of stores here.
    There was CVS, Walgreens, walmart, safeway, home depot, lowes, costco, kmart, target, sam's club just to name a few stores.

    But, when I asked hubby to get it at walmart the other day, he said they didn't have it. ???

    Never used bounce but when my MIL gave up housekeeping she had downey. It works so good when you prewash your fabric, especially if it is a large amount.

    Unfortunately, because of the "very pleasant scent", I cannot use it. I am terribly allergic to man-made scents.

    Bounce spray is a non-aerosol spray that is in the laundry department (I found mine on the top shelf) of Wal-Mart. I have not found it other places, but haven't look closely either. Would love to be able to find it in my local Sam's....

    the label says it is 'ironing spray' that is 'crisp like a starch' with 'no flaking' and 'no clogging'. The scent is 'outdoor fresh' and is in a 16 ounce bottle. Oh yeah, it is in a bright orange bottle....

    I to like it better than Best Press mostly because of the price and it works just as well. If I need lots of stiffness I still use my liquid starch that I also buy at Wal-Mart. This one come in a blue jug and you can make the strength you like.

    I bought a bottle too after reading about it on here. I love it!! I was wondering if they will come out with an unscented one. I like the scent of this one but I know there are people who can't use scents. My whole sewing rooms smells like it!!

    Has anyone made their own 'best press'? Someone told me there is a recipe for it and it includes vodka, a tiny amount of lavender scent and I can't remember what else. Anyone have the recipe?

    Maybe try contacting the Company with your request...pretty sure they would like to know there is an interest in it.

    I still can't find it even though the website said it was at my WalMart and Home Depot - neither had it. Very annoying.

    I can't find it either. Maybe it's a California thing.

    I emailed the company this afternoon for a location with this particular item...I figured out when you look for a location it is for ANY Bounce item...like dryer sheets....so I hope to get a response soon. Will share if it helps.

    Unhappy

    What a bummer I went to the site, as suggested and typed in my Ip code. "Not available in your area.". I'll have to stick with Mary Ellen's for a while longer. I do like it & try to purchase when on sale. I use a 3 oz. Travel hair spray bottle from Sally's Beauty Supply for seams. It goes a lot farther because their isn't so much overspraying.

    I am as well...I hate overly scented fabric softner sheets and despise people (men & women) who wear way too much cologne/perfume. YUCK!!!

    Thanks for the link. The price was $3.50 but the shipping was $7.60. So guess I will have to keep looking for it here.BrendaK

    Keep your eyes on the laundry section of your stores. It's there with the spray starches. If you can't find it where you live, get hold of the store manager & ask them to get it in. I just got some at Walmart. Came with a $1 off coupon, so it was $1.96. It is very comparable to Best Press. Same qualities, but much cheaper.
