"Any brand is fine even the Argos value is good!  Since you are in Ireland anything between £20 to £40 paint stripper is fine ...just remember to just cut the hose to about 12 inch length and rescale steamer with Oust when necessary!"

"Edith F- great idea! Finding it very hard to source a Jiffy Steamer in Ireland. Can you tell me what brand wall paper stripper you use and maybe where to source one? (as you can tell I've never stripped wallpaper!)  Thankyou, Michelle"

"I am late in responding, but I use plastic millinery wire for all of the washable hats that I make.  Works great, but caution hand washing, rather than throwing in with a washer of jeans. LOL"

Hat Wire Question -- washable?

I've recently been sewing some fabric hats -- pretty typical sunhats with extra-large brims.  They have that floppy look.  I'm considering sewing a wire along the perimeter of the hat to give it more structure.  With the materials I have used in the hats, without the wire, they could be washed in the washing machine or dry cleaned.  How would I clean the hat with the wire?  The remainder of the materials in the hat are 100% cotton duck for the hat, washable interfacing, and quilt batting.…See More
