I'm only maybe a quarter to a third of the way through this block for #paperpiecingvintage #ppv2017 ... so lovely, but so much work! I sprayed #bestpress on the red fabric a couple hours ago and it's still left a mark on the fabric! Hoping it'll disappear!

  • tennjennyI have had Best Press discolor my fabric lots of times, even the clear. My theory is that if you don't shake it *every* time, then you get higher concentrations of the starch substitute as the bottle empties. But I have no idea, really.
  • clumsykristel@tennjenny so I just started a new bottle (it's clear) and this is the second fabric it's discoloured! Both were solid fabrics... not sure if that could make a difference somehow, or maybe they use a different sizing on the fabric that's reacting with the starch sub
  • tennjennyI know mine has done it with solids but can't remember if it has done it with prints
  • tennjennyI do think it will wash out
