Default Stupid newbie question about starching korkers

I have heard people saying starching your bows and baking them. I am trying to make korkers tonight. Does it matter what kind of starch? I saw spray at HL tonight, but didn't want to spend that much on it. It was for starching ribbons etc. Can you just use reg spray starch?

I use Stiffen Stuff that I buy at Michaels or AC Moore depending on who has the better coupon for that week. Usually I end up getting it for around $2.50 I find it works really well. I bake my ribbon on the dowels first and then spray them as soon as they come out of the oven that way the starch dries really fast. Then after I'm done making the bows I lightly spray the finished bow and pop them in the microwave for 15-20 seconds to set their shape.

What do you guys mean "bake" your bows? You literally put them in the oven? Why?

I have the same problem. I find it sometimes helps to take the top of the pump off (just the part you depress) and soak it in a glass of super hot water immediately after using it. If you don't do it then, it will gunk out on you and have to spend forever trying to clean it out so it will work again.

Yes put them in the oven. I spray with starch and bake for 25 min at 225* It helps them hold their shape. (like using a curlying iron)
