My sister in law uses the straight part of the white plastic coat hangers. It never stains any of her ribbon.

I used to have that happen to me. . .then I read on here. . . .to bake your korkers at 260 degrees. Since I have been doing that they have not turned brown.

I hope that helps.

I never bake over 250 & it still happens occasionally. Some ribbon (especially the lighter colors) just seems to happen with more than others - especially if I spray starch prior to baking. I think it happens too when a darker color touches a lighter one.

I've never had that happen. I bake at 250 for 15-20 minutes. I don't starch prior, either.
