Wetting Your Fabric Before Pressing


Welcome to Tuesday’s Tips from SewVeryEasy,
my name is Laura. And when we need to wet our fabric before we press it there’s lots of containers we can get. You can get these lovely big ones with a nice pump handle, and you can get the littler ones that you can spray. This is great if you’re using a small piece of fabric, but if you are needing to press a very large piece of fabric that needs a lot of water, well, your finger might get a little sore on this so let’s think big. And this is big. You are not going to find this in a fabric store or a quilt shop because, well, you’re going to find it in the hardware store, and it’s a pressurized sprayer and it’s made for outside to spray chemicals on plants. And it’s pressurized which means when you pump this handle it builds pressure in the container so that when you push the handle it gives you a large amount of water without having to pump all the time. So you can get a lot of surface covered in a very short time and save your trigger finger. And the other bonus is you can adjust the knob so you can adjust your spray. It’s another way to get the job done, just a little bit faster. Thank you for joining me today on SewVeryEasy. Feel free to subscribe and, as always, come on back.
