    Default Question about 505 Spray use and dry cleanng

    I just noticed that on my can of 505 Spray it states to remove adhesive-dry clean...then it is not necessary to purge the spray after use...I probably have never read this or forgot...does anyone still use this product, especially on baby quilts?...I haven't pin basted my quilts for many years...any input would be appreciated..

    I stopped using it quite a while ago when I read that. I want my temporary spray adhesive to be temporary and wash out. I don't think I'd ever take one of my quilts to be dry cleaned. It's expensive to do where I am.

    Are you sure you are using 505 Tempirary spray ?
    I just read my Temporary spray and nowhere does
    it say anything about dry cleaning.
    I use 505 Temporary spray for machine
    embroidery only.
    I use 505 Temporary spray because
    it has the least smell I can use with my
    respiratory problems. I’m sure every
    quilter knows to never take a quilt to
    have cleaned. The toxic chemicals will destroy
    the fabric.

    Wow, glad you ladies brought this up. I am in the process of looking for a new brand of basting spray since June Taylor changed their formula my LQS recommended Sulky KK2000 which I tried and was happy with it but beware it really does dissipate after 5 days-the sandwich did begin to loosen. Big bonus was no smell and little to no overspray.
    One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

    Yes, it says temporary fabric adhesive on the can....what I am questioning is the safety issue especially for baby quilts...I have been reading online more about using the spray...I personally always use this spray and have for many years...thanks for any input...

    I checked online and there does appear to be two
    different 505 Temporary adhesives. One says for
    basting quilts. The other one does not say this
    on the front of the can. It is used for machine
    embroidery.

    What? Where'd this come from? What does a dry-cleaner do at their business? Their entire business is cleaning fabric!

    Quilts should be washed in a mild soap.
    Dry cleaners use harsh toxic chemicals.
    These chemicals are hard on the cotton fabric.
    Plus these toxic chemicals leave a toxic chemical
    smell which is a hazard to babies and anyone
    with respiratory problems.

    That's so sad! I use 505 all the time and never saw that. After I finish using all my cans, I guess I'll have to look for something else that doesn't smell. That is one of the main things I like about it. I will probably give sulky a try.
