New fabric bonding agent

Reading my Facebook page today and saw a post for this new product:

I use many permanent bonding agents in design and am always pleased to see a new one!  Haven't personally tried this one, but have had good results from other Aleene's products.  It says it is washable.  Drycleanable too????  Don't know.

Not for use on stretchy synthetic fabrics it says, wondering if that is stretchy and synthetic or if they mean also synthetic fabrics that are non-stretchy.  Will have to give it a try and see how it works!  Have used 3M permanent bonding tape, will need to compare this with their product.  One great advantage, this product comes in small sheets as well.

Have you tried this product?  What did you think?

Happy Stitching (though not with this one!).
