I thought one of the embroiderers would have a comment on this issue. I made in-the-hoop coasters that used water soluble stabilizer - I used Vilene. When finished I was able to wet the sides and have the stabilizer disappear. The coasters looked great. But in my analness, I decided to steam press them. They shriveled up, I think due to the melting of the stabilizer inside them. I washed them in warm water and dried them and they are OK now. No longer shriveled. But my question is, do any of you make coasters with water soluble stabilizer and did you ever wonder what would happen if the coaster got soaked with liquid?

Not really, but whatever stabilizer or even glue you want to use for something, you need to get it out of there, in the way they expected you to do it, first, before you do something else with the item. Or you might get a surprise.

For example if you use air souluable spray glue on something, it needs to go away with air, not water, as if water hits it first, it would most times be and instead turn into gummy and horrible mess. Also if it was a temporary wash away stabilizer, I would wash it out the right way, before I let water as in just drips or an iron touch it, just because I think it would buckle then instead where just drips of water hit it, and softened just part of it and they do expect on all of those things for you to just remove it, the way they thought you would, and probably did not test all possible things you could do to it instead, and then try to remove it later.

Ditto with using all those blue liquid wash out marking pens that are supposed to be air or water soluble, if you use a water soluble light blue one, but actually iron it with a hot iron before washing it out by mistake, then even though it seems gone at the moment, it may always come back later even. so probably no end to the surprises that could happen with anything, if all the conditions get changed around enough. I just happen to know about the above kind of ones, sort of by personal experience, not that they really listed all possible results like that, no matter what you do instead on the package of anything.
