I prefer Stay-flo because it doesn't have any smell to it at all (my kids have allergies & asthma; my customers' kids may too ). I don't have to worry about drying time because I BAKE them after I drench them. They are nice & stiff when I'm done. I'd love to see some of yours too!

Newbie question here: When you bake them, have you ever had a problem with the ribbon design bleeding all over itself?

Did I leave them in the oven too long?

Or starch too heavily? I think on that group I used aerosol starch because I hadn't mixed up my Sta-Flo yet. Could that be the problem?

Thanks! Your bows are gorgeous!
