Default Starching bows??

Does everyone starch? I haven't, although, I've starched some korkers while on the dowel. What starch do you use? All we had was the light starch that DH uses to iron his shirts.

I use regular spray starch, but some ladies use hair spray. I spray almost all of my bows.

I use Stiffen Stuff. I can't remember who on here used something else they diluted it with water and it would last for a long time. It was cheaper in the long run. I have to see who that was.

I used to use heavy spray starch. I bought Stiffen Quik recently and have had great luck with it, so I've stuck with that.
