This is a clear alternative to starch. You can see how much is left in the bottle. The package contains a shatterproof spray bottle.
👤I absolutely love this product. I use this all the time when I am sewing. It helps the piece go much better and my cotton fabric stays crisp and doesn't stretch when I sew it. You will buy it again and again if you try it.
👤I was expecting something great after reading about it. I wasn't impressed.
👤I've been using this product for a while. There are other products and homemade recipes that can be used to replace Mary Ellens Best Press.
It's versaTILE! Mister Mist spray bottles can spray upside down for 3 seconds. It's handy for curly hair. Their spray bottle is made of a good plastic and has a good Eco Profile so it is safe for spraying pets and kids on hot summer days. Don't settle for misery mist, try the Mister Mist 5-Pack today! It's great for any project. You can complete your project with batting and fill. The pre-cut was sold in a box. The package is 15 inches in H, 24.3 inches in L, and 14.5 inches in W.
👤Both sides had a problem. It's good! I put the quilt on the bed sheet. The face is backing down with batting. I used the iron as directed. To spend a couple of hours crawling on the floor, you should have an extension cord. Press 10 seconds per spot. Don't move iron back and forth. It was necessary to use a pressing cloth on the edges and corners to keep the hot iron plate from getting stuck. It worked well. Do both sides. Two quilts have been finished. Very happy.
👤I struggle with sandwiching my layers in small quilts. I decided to give this a try because my local store no longer carries another brand of iron on batting. Very pleased with the results. I have tied and quilted using this batting. I haven't hand-quilted yet. The odor of the glue is dissipated when it is heated. You can adjust and tug on the glue if you need to.
👤This is a game-changer for me. There were no puckers on the back of my quilt. If you pay attention to what you do, you will be able to take your time and get the job done.
👤I thought I'd try this because I no longer have a large work space to layout my quilts. It works great, I was very happy to do it. I only make small quilts so they are easy to use and hold together. I can't say how easy it is to work with larger quilts, but a laptop up to twin sizes works great.
👤It works well, but the folds distort it a bit. It's hard to separate the layers. It is worth the effort once you work with it.
👤This product was very disappointing. It sounded like a great product. The product was not usable for my project after it was stretched out from the packaging. It is difficult to lay it flat. I wouldn't recommend this product. I can't return it outside the time window. It is expensive to learn.
👤I was hoping that this batting could replace my old method of using spray glue to adhere the backing to the batting and the pieced top before sewing. I did a test swatch and it was not strong. It was held in place. The backing became wrinkled and hours of unpicking were required to keep it from shifting. The whole quilt sandwich process would have been easier with this product. I will never use this product again.
👤I liked this batting. I have already ordered more and would buy it again.
There is no fragrance and a flaky surface. The spray is infused with a clean scent to keep your fabrics fresh. It's perfect for travel and hotel stays. Non-Aerosol ironing spray is made with no harmful propellants. There was no animal testing. That perfect finish is provided by the scientifically engineered travel ironing spray starch. Protects fabric and helps to resist wrinkling. Will not be streak or spot. It is recommended for all fabrics. Don't use on materials labeled "Dry Clean Only." Made in the USA.
👤Oxford and Wells. The name evokes the persona of a butler assistant laying out your perfectly tailored outfit for the day. Sometimes a name is conjured for marketing purposes but doesn't connect to the product's origin or function. Think of ice cream from the movie, Haagen Dazs. It was founded in New York. This is almost one of those times, as the manufacturer is based in Texas and isn't a British firm. No matter. Their product functions in a way that is "properly" as the name implies. I enjoy ironing because of a weird genetic malfunction. It would be great to have the crisp and precise pressing reserved for those taking the time to do it correctly themselves and not knocked out, production-line piece work style. This is the best product I've ever used. The shirts don't come out like cardboard or just driving to work. There's a long lasting finish. Most products that serve this function do not have a white flaking and caking routine. I looked at their website to see if they have a secret formula. Corn starch is the main ingredient. Go figure. If you're going to iron your own, you should spend a little more money on this product. I was swayed by the reviews and now I agree. Very happy.
👤It's perfect for business travelers to take with them and prepare their dress clothes at the destination. One bottle will allow me to press all the clothes for a 3-4 day trip. It was small enough to not have leftover quantities.
👤I put the nozzle in my spray bottle because it streamed not sprayed. And it got stuck! I added water to it. It was better. It's not what I was looking for. I don't want to mix things up. I bought travel sizes because of this. I needed to know if I liked it or not. I won't be buying it again.
👤I stopped getting ready for work because I was so impressed with this starch. So I could get an iPad and submit a review. The small bottle size is my reason for choosing this, I needed a way to bring starch with me to look sharp on business trips. The small size is tsa compliant and perfect for my bag. I didn't have high expectations because the size was good. It smells great, it sprays on evenly, and my shirts look very sharp, but I first used it today and it was amazing. I bought this item for travel convenience and I'm likely to use it for my home starch as well. Very, very highly recommended.
👤It's perfect for travel. We spent a week in Las Vegas over Christmas and packed bottles in each bag. It worked well on clothes because of no problems with flying. I would recommend it if I could convince her to leave the mirror at home.
👤These are great to keep in a suitcase. The smell of the liquid is clean and does not leak from the inside of the aircraft. It has a medium hold on clothing, not as stiff as I'd like it to be, but it still does the job.
The package weight is 1.0 pounds. It creates flatter seams and better point alignment. The comfortabletrigger allows for broad application of the product. There is no fragrance and a flaky surface.
👤I expected more for my money. It worked like a regular spray. I stopped using this product because it didn't feel right while ironing my quilt, but I found a different product that did the job. I think it is a great product. I didn't think it worked for me. Will try it on other projects. I am so sorry.
👤I've used Best Press before and it blows this out of the water. It was really impressed. It has a good amount of starch. I stopped using Best Press because it left weird stains. I don't think this stuff is a good value since Best Press is cheaper. Even though it's more expensive, I'll keep buying it.
👤Good product. If you are making a pieced twin quilt you will need 2 to 3 bottles. I should have bought a second bottle of spray for my twin size quilt, I was very conservative with it. It is not white. I have never used a product like this before. It makes your seams look nice, but it doesn't make your fabric stiff. Just buy enough.
👤I decided to try this brand because I know some experienced quilters who recommended it. Although it works well, I didn't see a huge improvement over the kind I've purchased at Walmart. The bottle was not full when I received it. I will order this product online again.
👤I use Best Press a lot and needed something to stiffen the fabric. This spray is not enough for me.
👤This made ironing and sewing easy. I have bought other products, but they are not as good.
👤If you're sewing or quilt, this stuff is great. I highly recommend you.
👤Not commenting on the product itself. It is ridiculous to receive a shipment with a bottle that is less than one quarterer.
👤The product is brilliant, have used it for many years, and it is one of my 2 favourite products, it leaves fabrics smooth, and it is great to Quilt and wear, no residuals, the service was great, and it was a very Big Plus in my book. June Tailor is the creator of this product, many thanks to him.
👤I use a lot of starch in this product and it's too expensive, but it's not worse than the cheaper brand I was using. I don't think it's worth paying more for the name if money is no object.
👤It is quite expensive. Cheaper products can be used with care. The product does not leave a mark but it does not build up a firm fabric as it used to. It is a trusted product and I continue to use it.
👤It does what it says. It makes sewing pieces together much easier. It is addictive. I went through two bottles too quickly.
👤I have a wardrobe of crinkle shirts that don't crinkle when I twist and dry them. This has worked. The clothes are perfect.
You can use the free Chordana Play app to play your favorite songs on your device. Without using an iron, it removes most of the wrinkling. It can also be used as an anti-static spray. It's great for college students, business travelers, and last minute touch ups. Try it on some items. A new and improved spray nozzle.
👤It was so disappointing. I ordered this product for my dress shirts and it didn't do what I ordered it to do. I followed all the instructions. I liked the results of my cotton clothing. I feel that this product should state on the label which fabrics it is recommended for, because I feel that my white dress shirt looks horrible even after multiple chances and applications of this product. I was looking for a solution to my wrinkling issue, and I had a lot of dress/ work clothing. My initial frustration with the product was only intensified. Is there a better product for women's dress shirts that is not delicate and sheer? Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
👤I have been to medical school interviews all over the country. I don't have the money to keep my suit dry between interviews. I keep these with me when I travel so my suit stays fresh. I don't hot iron it because it's time consuming and I have other things to worry about on interview day. It would be great to keep clothes crisp and nice smelling if you don't feel like ironing them before you wear them.
👤I was talking to my girlfriend about using this for our trips. I ordered this for home because I was surprised by how well it works. It works very well. One caution... I put it in a tub and hang it up out of the closet because I think it has a strong odor and can make a hard floor slippery if you over spray it. No smell after that. It saves on taking to dry cleaner.
👤I absolutely love this product. A friend at work recommended it to me and I bought it a few months later. She would tell me how the wrinkle releaser saved her life when she was rushing to get her children to school in the morning. If she pulled out a wrinkled outfit, there was no need to put it back, find another, or use the ironing board because everyone was ready to start their day. I was eager to try it because I like to iron and experience a mad rush in the morning. I first used the product when folding laundry. The laundry in my house tends to sit in the basket for a long time after it's dry, leaving my husband's collared shirts and my work blouse with wrinkled skin. I used to have to pull out my ironing board and say a prayer that I didn't burn holes in our shirts. I lay the shirt out or hang it up, spray both sides and smooth it. My shirt is dry in a few minutes. I no longer have to worry about ruining a shirt with an overzealous iron, or being late for work because I want to get my blouse wrinkled before I leave. It's been great for me on all types of material. It also reduces static cling, and the scent is very nice. I highly recommend it.
France is the country of origin. This is a clear alternative to starch. It makes ironing easier, non-flaking, non-clogging, acid-free, and relaxes stubbornwrinkles. There is a package with one 32oz/999. A shatterproof spray bottle has 59ml in it. New finish, makes clothes resistant to soil, and makes fabrics look new.
👤When I was making my first quilt, this product was used on a show. I'd become frustrated when I'd leave "edges" where it had wet the fabric, and it made my fabric stiff. ME's BP makes those lightweight fabrics more stiff, so they don't have to be made stiff as a board, and it also creates wonderful creases when needed. I use this when ironing my clothes as it gives them a great body and the linen scent is the best. It doesn't smell like a cloud of perfume. It works well on cotton/shirting/light-midweight fabrics, but not sure how it works on heavy fabrics. It doesn't affect the iron or fabric. Light fabrics are more flimsy when combined with dark fabrics, and I use Best Press to spray my light stuff. I hang my fabric on the hangers to dry before pressing and cutting it. When the blocks are assembled, I give the block a little application of ME's BP to allow it to dry before pressing to have a more firm fabric to work with. I would like to see Amazon offer the Linen in a 1 gallon size. I used 2 16oz bottles on my first quilt.
👤The reviewers claim that this is a positive thing. It has a fresh smell without being overpowering. I bought the blue color. The scent of perfume could be used without clashing with another scent. I am amazed at how the lightest of garments never seem to have any white spots. I put my starch in a spray bottle that sprays a mist similar to aerosol so it is easy to apply without big drips onto the fabric. The sprayer was bought on Amazon. If you want the effect without being stiff or cruisy, you should use senna. I know it sounds weird but the crease isn't too stiff. The lack of white marks on the surface of the starch makes it worth the hefty price. I have never had oily spots with the product I received. ironing is already a chore and this starch makes the job easier, if you are on the fence about purchasing.
👤I couldn't go back to any other product that I had used before. I like the scent of the "Linen Fresh". Not rude. I like the fact that it doesn't get flaky like spray starches. I am a quilter. Many of the fabrics I use are starched. It helps in keeping the fabric shape when it's cut, and it also helps when it's sewn. Everyone I've given any of my quilts to has commented on how neat my work is and how good the scent of the fabric is.
👤I like the Mary Ellen products. I've used both of them. I don't get any spotting or flaking. It's very friendly to my iron. There was no build up on the iron plate. Wrinkles iron or even the more stubborn one. The only issue I have with Linen Fresh is that it makes me cough and irritate my lungs when ironing. I don't experience any irritation when using the Mary Ellen product. I will probably only use the unscented product. Great product! Linen Fresh scented gets 4 stars from me.
The spray component is included. This is a clear alternative to starch. One shatterproof spray bottle is in this package. There is a variety of wonderful scents available.
👤The good news is that this bottle arrived with a spray head, unlike other customers who only received the bottle with a lid. The product has no scent. The very bad news. This product is endorsed on sewing web sites for its ability to uncurl the edges of jersey knit fabric. The edges of the cotton jersey I bought from Alabama Chanin were curled in on themselves, as I was told to do. I used the Best Press on samples of two different colors of fabric, one bright red and the other light cream. It took a lot of ironing to get the smallest amount of flattening. The fabrics were sprayed and then ironned. The red fabric was washed and the stains were reduced. I didn't want to wash the cream fabric because I'll be sewing the edges together and they'll just curl if it's washed. After spending about 5 minutes to press a foot of fabric, I decided to try again on a length of cream fabric. I tried lower and higher heat on the iron, with and without steam, spraying directly onto the fabric, and spraying onto the ironing board cover, but none of those made a difference in the results. The product has a spray setting that sprays clear liquid. I tried using a small paint brush to apply the Best Press to the edges, but that added to an already long process. It was a frustrating experience. It's important to test this on a large piece of fabric before you use it on a garment or any work-in-progress.
👤Mary Ellen's Best Press, Clear Starch and Sizing Alternative, Scent-Free, 16.9 Ounce is advertised as a "starch and sizing alternative" and from past experience we know that it is used to stiffen fabric. We were looking to replace our spray starch product which helps to stiffen fabric, so that's great. Again, that's what starch does. Right? We ordered this product and it was delivered without any problems. The Sprayer works well. It didn't seem to do anything when used on different fabrics. The "starch alternative" is not the same as the "starch". This product doesn't stiffen or add a body to the material. This spray was useless because we have a fabric that likes to curl. The fabric stiffener we used did a great job, we used an Amazon link at the end. I watched videos online about the product to make sure I was using it correctly after seeing all the great reviews. The directions were followed but not working. I'm wondering if there is a cult following for this product as it does nothing. We tested it with a drinking water test kit we bought on Amazon, which found that it was safe to drink. Here are the good things. No scent 2. The Sprayer works well. You can see how much product is left in a clear container. 4. If you get something on you, it's not sticky. 5. No fumes. You don't have to wear a mask to use it. 6. Iron is clean. 7. It works like water. The Not Good: 1. Doesn't add any body to the fabric. 2. Aleenes-15581-Stiffen-Quick-Fabric-Stiffening is a fabric stiffener.
Curls can be refreshed with theFunctional Squirt Water Sprayer. It's great for home and salon uses. The Stiffen-Quik formula dries clear so it won't tarnish your piece, and you can spray more coats when you want a heavier shaping. It's a good idea to wash it out and make a new piece. There is an 8oz pump spray bottle. The spray component is included.
👤This isn't like it makes a fabric stronger than a wood. If you like me, you should look for something that helps a fabric stand on its own, not something that gives it some strength.
👤I bought this for macrame. I have been using it for a few days. I have to leave a review since it is a pretty penny to spend on stiffener. The piece in the picture is densely knotted. It won't make it hold straight or anything, but it will give a protective barrier for the cotton. I expected it to work with the macrame feathers. It doesn't work on loose strands. I sprayed from a distance and the piece lost its shape. I had to brush and cut again, and it was like nothing had been sprayed. I will be using it to finish a knotted piece, but not to "stiff" up any of my loose strands.
👤This was what I needed. I had no idea how I was going to make the blouse work. I lived on the wild side and didn't even cover my table before spraying it with the product, but it was damp and I didn't want to ruin it. I dried it with a hair dryer and the fabric was stiff. It was perfect! I had no problems with my machine, except for a few places where I accidentally applied the product and it was too slippery. I had some problems after my machine and needle protested. The difference was made by Stiffen Quik. I will use this product again when I sew. The blouse is back to it's slinky texture after it was washed out.
👤My nephew's wife loves how this stuff makes the hairbows look like they are made for her little girl. She says they are worse than the ones her mom makes. I shared my secret so Ellen could make bows too. Down in the South, the bows are as big as the tea. They need to have a little speed. We can't have limp bows here. It's a good thing. Depending on how much "sturdy" is required for a particular bow, you can spray a little or a lot. Let it dry and shape it. If you get too much "sturdy" going on, you can always deflate it.
👤I need this to make the sun hat brims stiff again. It worked well. I don't think it will last long, but I'm glad I have my sun hats. I was worried that it would have a strong smell. Either it didn't. I applied it outside on the patiio table.
👤It is so easy to use. The blow dry method made it easy to shape hair bows.
👤If you have a large project, get a better spray bottle. If you don't use it all in one sitting, you should rinse out the sprayer and store it in a way that it won't work again. It did a few coats on the bowls.
👤I bought this to make my straw beach hat fit better, as packing had given it a floppy brim and collapsed crown. I shaped the crown by hand after spraying it liberally and stuffing it lightly with a plastic bag. It should be dry for 30 minutes. The crown was lightly set. The floppy brim was sprayed inside and out until it was soaked, then set over the corner of the patio table so it would curve downward over the face. After spraying it a couple more times, it held it's shape. The bottle is still full, but the hat is nicer. It worked because of the great value.
The product is manufactured in the US. The product is free of scent. The product is manufactured in the US.
👤I like the scent of this product and it's my favorite scent, but the other ones are nice as well. It doesn't leave the white remnants on the fabric like other starches do. I use it with my steamer. I ran out and went to many stores to find this product. I got a huge refill so it will last. I can use this refill to press many clothes and sewing projects. Very happy!
👤We decided that the best way to iron is to use the ironing board and not the steam irons. You can sprinkle or spray water on the lavender scented sizing product, then iron it. This way you don't have to put up with steam irons spotting your clothes as you iron, all irons that you add water to use will give you this problem, so stop using the steam option.
👤Mary Ellen has the best ironing spray. Many years. Amazon sold it in gallon containers. I am a master seamstress. I use this spray to iron the seams. Press them open. I sew. Mary Ellen's can be used to make the fabric smooth and smell fresh. It is not a vegetable. It is better for the fabric. Not thick or sticky. It's perfect for my ironing needs.
👤I like to use this to crisp up the fabric before sewing it. It makes it easier. You can make it as crisp as you want. It is important to keep the edges from fraying as much as possible because the thread count is not very high. A little makes a big difference.
👤I like the lavender scent of Best Press. It doesn't leave any marks after stiffening the fabric. It helps for accurate cutting. I get it by the gallon because of the price.
👤I've been sewing for a long time. I use a water spray bottle instead of putting water in my iron. I would buy spray starch when I wanted to make something. It always smelled clean. Best Press was discovered by me. I don't know why I bought it. Works well. My favorite scent is lavender. Two years ago, I bought my daughter a bottle to drink from as she was learning to sew. It comes in a gallon so I can refill my sprayer. I hope Mary Ellen makes the lavender scent.
👤Mary Ellen's Best Pressed has been used by me for a while. It was hard to find a good price in store. The value is great. This is a non-sticky, non-flaking substance. I have a lot of summer linen and it does a great job and the lavender scent is light, not overpowering. My husband does his ironing. I'm a lucky woman. He loves it too. It's great to stiffen up your work. I love this stuff!
👤I've been using Mary Ellen's for a long time. I used to buy it at the fabric store for a much higher price than what you can find on Amazon. I do a lot of sewing. This stuff is great as a substitute for starch. It's difficult to remove the folds. I wish it worked on my face. There was no iron build up. I'm buying it by the gallon. The lavender has a light scent that doesn't leave a heavy perfume on ironing board.
It was made in the United States. The Needle ArtsQUILTER'S STARCH 1 GALLON.
👤After washing and drying the fabric, spray a light mist, iron and you will see how Starch Savvy leaves the fabric looking great.
Traditional stabilizers are replaced with machine embroidery, electronic cutting, and inkjet printing stabilizers. Fray free stabilizers for press, raw edge and knife edge. It's great for 3D fabric flowers, 3D fabric/fiber art, and fabric scrapbooking. In 16oz, 32oz, and 1 gallon sizes. Made in the USA with natural ingredients.
👤The product does what it says it will do. The material is stiff. I will not be using it again because of the smell. I was really bothered by my allergies.
👤I used terial Magic to prepare fabric for cutting. Scan and cut. The Scan n Cut cut the quilt appliqués just like it would cut paper after stiffening the fabric.
👤This is the first time I've tried this product. It works well for stabilizing or stiffening fabric. I used the spray from my mixture of 1 part Terial Magic and 3 parts water. After spraying, it is helpful to sit the fabric for a few minutes to allow it to absorb the fibers before ironing.
👤This product leaves the cloth very stiff. This can be used as a spray application or as a soaking of the cloth. It has a scent but eventually wears off.
👤A friend of mine told me about this and she was telling the truth. This stuff makes spray starch look wet. You want your fabric to be stiff. The stuff is perfect. Wait a minute or two and iron it, then spray it on. It is wonderful to use a die to cut fabric. I am ordering this by the gallon. You can get a small bottle.
👤Textual magic should be what this product is. The ultimate fabric stiffener for sewing and machine embroidery projects is called Terial Magic. I used the magic of Terial Magic to make my fabric stronger. It made my fabrics feel like a sheet of paper. It is great for using on fabrics for machine embroidered designs and fabrics that need a bit of extra body.
👤I would not have been able to use the fabric without this stiffner. If you need a little re-stiffening, just spray lightly again with water and allow to dry and press with a hot iron. I put water to half strength to start.
👤I was not happy with this product. I thought this was a great idea and do a lot of machine embroidery. I didn't know that you have to saturate the fabric to make it hard on clothing. For small projects, it's fine, but it didn't work for me.
👤It is great for stiffening fabric when it is used straight, if it is used with water, it will work better than spray starch.
