    I don't like Vodka so I am sticking with Best Press. My favorite is the lavender.

    I once had a great recipe for a nice pressing spray: 1 cup alcohol (or vodka for you drinkers!), 1 cup water, 1/4 cup liquid fabric softener. Mix well, put in spray bottle and use. I used to use it years ago and it was wonderful for clothes. I only thought of using it for quilting as I'm reading this post.

    QJ!
    I'm interested in trying the vodka and water Best Press substitute. How do I know if my vodka is potato based?

    Don't know about the potato based vodka but I was told to use the cheapest vodka you could find. That's what I did and it works wonderfully!
