I answered other because I spray them, then bake them. I use heavy starch to spray them. (the same stuff to iron your clothes)

I use hair spray. I use to use Stiffen Stuff but it would clog too much and besides hair spray is cheaper and seems to work better.

There are a lot of 'others'. Is everyone else using hairspray? I understand if you don't want to give your secrest away. I am just curious.

I use non toxic beacon "Stiffen Stuff" fabric stiffening spray if I decide to stiffen them.
