Default Microwaving a bow

I saw this tip from Lilredsmiles. If you don't want to turn your oven on for just one bow, starch or use hairspray as you normally would (or not if you don't) and microwave the bow. I did four intervals of 25 secondson a clean plate, and popped it out in between each time to check it. Stiff, perfect, and ready to go! You're saving time and $$ (on energy costs). HTH.

Don't let the ribbons touch and dont put it in longer than 1 minute at a time. I does melt ribbon!!!

Yes I only did 25 seconds at a time. If I do more than one I will not let them touch, thank you! Since we are moving off base and utilities will be our responsibility, using the oven less will help tremendously! Especially with summer coming.
