I haven't had any problems either in Louisiana. I use Aussie because it smells so good. In fact, I've had customers tell me that that's one reason they love my bows. I even tell some of my heavy repeat customers (you know, the ones who have tons of my bows?) that they can spritz their bows with water and "fluff" em back up with a little Aussie spritz after they get it reshaped. One of my best customer's sends her little girl to daycare in a bow everyday. She gets filthy, so her mom washes her bows on delicate in the the washer or hand washes them. So I've shown her how to shape them back up. Bows are an investment in my opinion, so customers need to know how to take care of 'em.
