    Got this one out of an old Mag.

    Store your fusible webbing in a “Postpak“tube and put gel packs from shoe boxes in it to prevent the webbing coming away from the backing paper.

    Tell me how it goes girls. I already use the Postpak but think the gel packs from shoe boxes could be a good trick.

    SHAME got to go and buy a new pair of shoes Now :lol: :roll: 8) :wink:

    OK, now that we know what a gel pack is, what the heck is a postpak? 8)

    A Postpak is what you put ALL your fabric in and then you send it to me! :)

    :? wouldn't it be better if it were stored flat? I have my leftover Steam a seam 2 still in the plastic packaging with the zip-top. Won't that do?
