Mary Ellen's Best Press Clear Starch Alternative-16oz is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes ironing pleasant I like to iron pillowcases, dish towels, etc., and this product is very pleasant to use. It is not a starch in the traditional sense as it does not cause the fabric to become "stiff;" rather, it gives the fabric some body and makes it easier to iron out wrinkles. Plus, the scent (I have lavendar) is nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PRESS Mary Ellen Best Press is the "starch" to have on hand. I quilt and sew and I wouldn't use any other product to stabilize or put body into fabric. It does come in 1 gallon size and they quit selling it so I have to go to another store to purchase it. I have 2 spray bottles full at all times. I think you made a BIG mistake dropping the gallon size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best un starch I only have one problem with this. I wish it was cheaper. It works so well. The lady who was cutting my fabric talked me into getting it. I though "ok, whatever". It really worked. And it doesn't leaved a nasty residue on the bottom of my iron. We use cloth napkins every day and my husband likes them all nice and ironed. That's cone with me because he irons them. He uses the steam from the iron and it, took me awhile to get it him to try the Best Press but now he loves it. Our napkins our beautiful and he's happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS STUFF!!! If you haven't tried Best Press, you definitely should. It really does live up to the company's statement that they make ironing (almost) fun. It smells great and never flakes or gets sticky or anything like most other products do. Definitely the best I have found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the stubborn wrinkles out! Nothing is more aggravating then to do your vey best job pressing fabric before making a project and then to see a stubborn wrinkle after the fact that won't come out. Mary Ellen to the rescue with this product. It removes the toughest of wrinikles instantly plus provides just the right amount of starch and it doesn't plug up my iron. I love the Fresh Linen scent the best because it retains that fresh linen smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than any starch I use this for everything I can. The scents are great and this product never leaves that starch residue on anything, including dark fabrics. I would love to see this sold in larger bulk refill sizes to save on the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this starch I do enjoy this product! It works on many fabric types and does not leave a residue after ironing. It will leave your wood floor sticky if you over spray past your fabric, however it does clean up nice with warm water
