I am so impressed with these two new Artistic products! I just love that someone has finally come up with a product that is low VOC. I attend a lot of retreats where everyone is using spray products and it has become a real issue for some people. Sensitivities to these types of products has really increased.
I have used both of these products successfully. There is next to no smells emitted with these at all. As a precaution, I try to spray only outside, but some days that just doesn’t work well due to poor weather. I had no issue with these inside the house.
I almost always use a spray adhesive when creating quilt layers. But, I also like to know that the products are completely removed with washing. As I like the look of a washed quilt, this is good for me. The Artistic Tack adhesive washed away completely leaving my finished project nice and soft to the touch. I also use this Artistic Tack with my machine embroidery designs. The Artistic Tack released the paper stabilizer backing after stitching without any issues.
I am most excited about the Artistic Clean product. I have been doing machine embroidery for many years. I never cleaned my hoops. I always told myself that the stickiness on the hoop helped to hold my fabric better. It was just my excuse to not clean it. Just look at my filthy hoop.
I decided to give the new Artitstic Clean a challenge to see how well it would work. I laid down some paper towels and sprayed the cleaner as directed on the can. There was no smell from the product.
In less than 2 minutes I had a perfectly clean hoop. No more excuses for me to not clean the gunk off of my hoops.
After cleaning my hoop, I sprayed a little of the Artistic Clean on a rag and wiped down the bed of my sewing machine. The stickiness there was instantly removed.
I love these new products for how well they work and for the low VOC ratings.
