Default Starching & baking

Someone gave me some bows. They are really big & floppy. Any way to stiffen them so they don't look so floppy? Can I starch & bake after there's already a clip attached?

Not usually. Baking loosens the glue on the clips. You will have a huge mess on your hands. I have saw some talk about spraying with hairspray. HTH

Spray with hairspray and let them dry for a night. Works like a charm.

Do you know if the hairspray will create flakes on the bows? I have only used Aleenes Stiffen product but hairspray would be less expensive.
