| | Re: Starching Bows?
I bake my bows before they are assembled at 275 degrees for 20min. Then I spray them with the stay-flo/water mix and put them back in the oven to dry (after the oven is turned off and cooling...they dry really quickly this way). After they are assembled I spray them one more time with starch.
Also, for any bow I put on a shoe, I also spray them with two coats of ScotchGuard. This way they are protected from major staining and they can wipe clean with just a damp cloth. HTH
