Default Re: S/O: Do you starch bows? If yes, which ones?

i was using the store brand stiffiner, bit i recently graduated to STA FLO I put it in a spray bottle that I got at Walmart I cut my length to what ever I need spray a little starch and start working with my ribbon after im done making the bow i spray a little more. I do it this way to insure all the creases in between stay put... ohh before i spray the first time i cut my ends and fray check them. HTH

If I'm in a hurry, I put my bows in the microwave to dry them fast. Works great.
