Question Faultless Starch

So I tried this today for the first time and I don't think I like it. I usually use Ailene's Stiffen Quick and love it, but thought I would try faultless since its cheaper but it seems that it dulled the ribbon. I know I could rinse it out and start over but I was wondering if anyone else has gotten this result??

Default Re: Faultless Starch

I've tried faultless before when I was just starting to stiffen up my bows and I just didn't like the results. It would flake and fade or it wouldn't stiffen enough. I started using Staflo and I love it. I use a 50/50 mixture and it works perfectly never had a problem. You can find it in the laundry detergent isle near the other starch brands. hth

I have a brand new just-from-the-store can of the purple topped Faultless spray starch sitting on my shelf. I've been so tempted to use it based on the reviews I've read here (they were positive). However! I appreciate you sharing your results ~ maybe it's not as good as they say?

Also, I am a devout user of Aleene's. I've never had one issue with her stiffener and it has performed beautifully for me in all instances.
