Default fabric stiffener or starch?

Which do you use? I've never used either but would like to try them out on my korkers. I'm going to Wal-mart tonight, so which should I buy?

I have the fabric stiffener & it gets clogged up a lot & it is more expensive. I have started using the spray starch & it is cheap & works really well. It also doesn't get clogged up.

I use cheap Faultless spray starch and it works perfectly for me. I know some ladies here use hair spray, but I have never tried that.

I use Stiffen Stuff, but I don't think Wal-Mart sells it. I get mines from Michaels.

I like how it stiffens, but the clogging thing is killing me!!! I even tried to buy two different spray bottles from Sally's and even those darn things got clogged...

I haven't tried that yet...maybe I'll give it a whirl...thanks!!
