    Bounce Ironing Spray works awesome!!!!!!!!!

    I just tried this product and am totally amazed how well it works in place of starch. I like to use starch on my fabric before cutting out my pieces....living in Canada purchasing starch is non existent except for aerosol starch. I have friends that go to the states and bring me back Sta Flo....which I love. But in between their visits to the states I will be using Bounce Ironing Spray. Give it a try I'm sure you will all be impressed and the price is good too.

    I bought some last week and tried it--there was a $1 coupon on the bottle It does work pretty well and leaves a Bounce/Febreze scent behind.

    Ladies at our guild were using this yesterday. They seemed to really like it so next time I go to Walmart I plan on getting some to try it out.

    I was sent a free sample and liked it a lot. I went to Walmart and bought a case of of 12 bottles. I knew the price would only increase later on and it did. I think it has a lighter scent then Best Press. A guild member is very sensitive to scents and the Bounce spray doesn't bother her.
    Got fabric?

    Is the scent really strong? I do not want to get an allergy attack.

    That is my problem. Most products have too much scent added and both my husband and I get sick. What is wrong with natural?

    How stiff does it make the fabric?

    I have been looking for this product for months. I have checked several Wal-Marts, Targets, Walgrens, etc--can't find it any where.

    I will have to see if I can find it somewhere to try. I do like the Best Press but it is pricey. Hopefully I can find it and it won't be too "scenty"

    You folks on the QB turned me on to the merits of starch/Best Press, etc. Found a bottle of the Bounce and used it for the first time last week. VERY helpful. Think I paid about $3.49 at our local WalMartm which still makes it about half the price of Best Press at my LQS. Personally, I'd prefer a little less scent but it isn't obnoxious.

    I'm not allergic, but I really hate to buy products that are scented. Why do manufacturers do this?

    Feel the same way. It is hard to find unscented anything!

    I agree with you! I tried the product a month or so ago and have been using it ever since. I think it leaves the fabric nice and solid for cutting and piecing. I also like that it is a spray bottle and non-aerosol. The smell is pleasant and not over powering. The Downy wrinkle release works too, but I prefer the Bounce spray.

    I like best press diluted with some water in a 3 oz travel hair spray bottle for pressing when piecing but will look into this product for pressing fabric after washing.

    Have never heard of it. Wish I had known about it today, was at WalMart and would have looked for it.

    Very interesting. I was curious so I googled, and came across this:

    "Bounce Ironing Spray contains patented polymers. The polymers also pull humidity from the air while you wear your clothing, relaxing the fabric and preventing wrinkles from returning. It is safe on all fabrics."

    I asked my husband (the walking encyclopedia) what a polymer is, and he replied that it's a plastic, like Flubber.

    I'll have to do some digging, see if I can get a free sample too!

    I finally found Bounce spray at Walmart, they finally got it in.. I looked and looked in every store for a long time. Now that I got it, it is good. Not crazy about the scent but no problems or complaints. I still like Mary Ellen Press better, it has a better scent and just so crisp! I would probably buy Bounce again, especially if ME's is not on sale.

    So what are the contents? I am a package reader, because of my allergies. Is it an aerosol or a pump sprayer? I am not into all those chemicals, so will have to look for it and read the ingredients before I jump in and buy it.

    I'm gain! I will check out our local Walmart (ugh) and see if I can find it. What department? I said "ugh" because our Walmart is huge and parking is a bear and even if you only want one item, you are there for 45 minutes. I try to steer clear of Walmart unless it's 7 am or 10 pm.
