So far all I've done with rhinestones is Gem-Tac glue, which works really well for non-hotfix (the rhinestone guy sings its praises too). Yes, the white gets tarnished if it gets too hot. that is the starch scorching. You can wash your bow with liquid dish soap and warm water and it will come clean. No need to bake again you have already reshaped your polyester permanently. But I would re-starch and let air dry.
