Default Does everyone spray starch on your korkers?

I don't usually make bows, but I am making some for my next craft show and I was wondering if I should spray starch on them? I have always heard people say that if you don't then if it's humid outside they can come un-curled, is that true? Any help is appreciated!

I spray them before and after I bake them.

I do too. I would rather have them stiffer, than go through all of that work and them come uncurled.

I don't spray them and the hold very well. I do want to say some ribbon works better than others. By accident one time I spilled wated on one ribbon stick and baked it wet it came out better than the rest.

I mix 50% Sta-Flo starch with 50% water and spray the heck out of them.

I do not starch. I really dont think the ribbon needs it. I even washed a big fluffy korker and dried it. It was still big and fluffy.

I spray because I want them to stay crisp and pretty.
