Default Re: Perky Bows - Bake or Hair Spray???

Thanks for the input!

I like the idea of non-toxic! Younger babies definitely chew things. I haven't had my daughters ever chew a bow to where I couldn't just fluff it back to shape, but I'm thinking baking or starching might help it be a little more chew-proof, lol.

The 5 layer kind seem to hold their own pretty well, but the regular stacked seem to want to fold forward a bit. With resins, they hold their shape a little better, but without, they just seem a little floppy to me.

I very rarely use hair spray (hate smells!), but I think I might have some anti-humidity kind around here somewhere. Do you think that would work to test on a bow? You don't have to really saturate it, do you? Hobby Lobby is quite the drive (an hour or more), so I won't be heading out that way until I need to restock clips.
