Default Re: Stay Flo help!

Just put a batch of bows in the oven.... using Sta-Flo, threw away the empty jug and sat down and saw this post. Here is what I do.

I purchased a empty spray bottle when I purchased my first jug of Sta-Flo. You can find them in the garden, laundry and automotive departments of Wal-Mart. You can also find them at most dollar-stores.

For my korkers... I mix 1/2 and 1/2 of Sta-Flo and water. I simply add in 1 cup of Sta-Flo and 1 cup of water (then repeat until my spray bottle is filled) I'm very happy with how these come out. I like my korkers stiff.

I do not think there is "Sta-Flo Heavy"... if there is I have never seen it. The Sta-Flo comes in a jug and there are directions on the back label for mixing the starch according to your preferences for how stiff you want your textiles to come out. I pulled the jug out of the trash and here is what the back label reads.

Light/ Add six cups of water to each cup of Sta-Flo
Medium/ Add four cups of water to each cup of Sta-Flo
Heavy/ Mix half Sta-Flo and half water
Extra Heavy/ Use undiluted Sta-Flo

Hope this helps!
