    Red face 505 Red or Yellow Basting Spray?

    Help...I know you all have mentioned basting sprays before...I have a question about 505...what is the difference in the red and yellow can and which one do you all like best...I bought a can of Dritz heat activated basting spray (the only thing my JoAnn's has in stock) and it's not working well at all...I would appreciate any input from you...thanks in advance...

    My can is yellow and says temporary basting adhesive. I love using it.

    According to www.sewforless.com there is no difference between the red or yellow cans of 505 just where they are manufactured. I just got an email that they have it on sale for $13.49 today. I love it and their service is great!

    I just bought Tailor spray baste at WM (was to tired to drive any farther) and it is working very well. And the best part, it was less than $10 for can. They had Dritz as well for $18, but was being cheap too. I am quite happy with it. Put together quilt for hospital and had no problems at all. Held up the whole time I was quilting.

    I've had both the yellow and the red cans. The red cans were larger than the yellow cans is the only difference that I could tell.

    N - is it NECESSARY?
