Default dowels?

I just started starching my korker ribbon before baking it and have noticed that my dowels are getting kind of rough. Has this happened to anyone else? If so did you sand them or did you just get new ones?
TIA, Suzie

Sand them or get new ones...b/c they will splinter and get stuck in the ribbon or your hand!

I personally think that the dowels I have been getting lately are not near the quality and finish I had about a year or so ago, they are rougher when I get them than they used to be
