I have a brand new just-from-the-store can of the purple topped Faultless spray starch sitting on my shelf. I've been so tempted to use it based on the reviews I've read here (they were positive). However! I appreciate you sharing your results ~ maybe it's not as good as they say?
Also, I am a devout user of Aleene's. I've never had one issue with her stiffener and it has performed beautifully for me in all instances.
