Question Another starching query

Do you ladies just starch and bake twisted boutique bows or do you starch other types of bows. I make a few TB and do starch them, but the majority of my bows are the basic boutique and pinwheels. Is it necessary to starch those. Thanks for any info you can give me.

Lately I've been lightly starching the boutique bows, nothing too heavy. I never starch pinwheel type "flat" bows. No baking here either... unless it's korkers

I don't bake anything, but I do use stiffen stuff instead of starch. (it works better). Sometimes I will spray a pinwheel, if it is not laying right. I always do twisted boutiques and have started doing my clippies too.

I startch EVERYTHING (almost-excet for sheers)! And, I lay it on thick. I have found it makes everything easier to spot-clean later-I have 2 mud monkeys, so they're bound to get dirty.

Thanks everyone for that info - It doesn't take long to starch a heap of bows at once so that's what I'm going to do now. Yay, I'm getting more info every day.
