Even after washing it numerous times?? I never give a baby blanket without washing it first, at least 2 times.

That's good information Susan, thanks for sharing it, makes me rethink the stuff, even though it makes sandwiching easier, it doesn't seem worth the risk.

I've never bought any. Once, in a class, the instructor used it and 2 people there had a reaction, so the rest of us decided not to buy any of that stuff in the future.

Think of the first three as basically a Bic Lighter - they are the reason the spray adhesive is "extremely flammable".


Most if not all of these chemicals are volatile, meaning they are a vapor at room temperature and only the person doing the spraying will be exposed. They are propellants and chemicals to help the adhesive dry quickly. I highly doubt any will stick around in any finished product, particularly after washing. It is definitely important to follow the directions on the can and use the spray only in a well ventilated area, and away from hot irons or other fire hazards as you are completely correct that those chemicals are flammable.
