    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.

    Got fabric?

    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.

    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.

    I have used this and really like it. My scrappy fabric in my unorganized supply are really full of wrinkles and
    it works great.

    NO KIDDING !!! once you love something they make a 'great value' substitute and get rid of the name brand one.. Drives me crazy.. So im like you, I will buy in bulk cause you never know if they will have next time you need it..

    I make my own and have the sprays- depends on what im doing;
    for piecing- use my own (sta-flo/water/frebreeze)
    for finishing tops- Niagra
    for pressing yardage- Niagra
    for finished quilts- best press for a nice presentation..

    Some time ago on the board someone said that they cut Mary Ellen's spray in half with water. I've been doing it ever since and it works great, I for one didn't notice any difference except it goes a lot farther now :0)

    I will look for the Bounce on the next trip too!
