RE: protective coating?

I just bought some iron seems to be ok...but I think a spray item would be better because this vinyl puckers a bit over the embroidery....maybe this would be the best though....any thoughts?...Judy

RE: protective coating?

They removed the "Good" Scotchgard from the market a few years back because the powers that be decided it was no longer enviornmentally safe fo us to use. The new one is probably 4-5 years old by now & does not work as good. There is probably no spray out any better than it is though.
