Remember depending what type of ribbon you are using will change your temp. You will learn through experimenting
Does the Sta Flo you use have a scent to it? I bought some bows from a lady on etsy that were starched and they smelled so good. It wasn't like perfume. I could tell it was whatever she sprayed on it, but I haven't found a starch that smelled like her bows.
