    Default New ironing spray

    Someone posted about Bounce ironing spray and I found it at Walmart. It's not a starch but more like Mary Ellen's Best Press. It was $2.98 for the big spray bottle size. There was three bottles on the shelf and I bought all three. I'll take one for guild use and show and tell.

    Have you tried it yet? What did you think about it? It is perfumey in smell like the dryer sheets are?

    Sgardner, If you don't like the scents they put in commercial starches and ironing sprays, you can make your own with just corn starch and water. I make my own and it costs, oh I'd say about 3 cents for 16 ounces.

    It gives the same results as the Best Press. The scent is present when I was ironing but it didn't seem to stay in the fabric that I could tell. It's a very clean scent not as strong as the dryer sheet smell. I made the cornstarch version and it flakes too much and seems to burn if using a hot iron. There are unscented sprays that are very good. I reason if I couldn't afford starch I didn't need to be quilting in the first place. LOL.

    Thanks for the heads up! Glad you don't live in my area, lol. I'll look for it in my Walmart and hope someone didn't snatch them all up!

    Walmart here is very bad about not having the same product again, especially new items. I learned to buy as much as I can when I see it. I was with three of my quilt buddies at the time and they they didn't want any. I did try to share it! LOL.
