Question What do you use to tie your bows?

Lately I have been using embroidery floss, but it doesn't work the greatest. I could use some new ideas. What do you guys use?
Thanks!

I like upholstery thread. I also found that the button an dcraft thread (coats and clark) is a good tying strength. Some people use elastic thread.
