Default Re: I just ruined 5 yards of korker ribbon

I had red ribbon with white hearts on it, when I baked starched and all that the white hearts turned pink..I really think it might have something to do with the dyes in the actual ribbon...what I did to fix my issue like this is I. Turned my heat way down, extended the cooking time, and starched a heck of a lot more! And I use heavy heavy starch lol...I hope this helps!!

Argh, wasn't that upsetting? Sorry it happened to you too Did it work better for you the second time? Also, what kind of starch do you use?

So, here they come out of the oven and all the white parts of the ribbon are now deep gray. It was ribbon that was black with white and pink circles on it.

I guess it doesn't matter what color it *was*. It's now garbage

Is there any help for me?
I just had this happen to me too! Same colour, black with white polka dots. I didn't throw mine out though lol I put my korker together and I figure if someone buys it, great, if not then oh well.

Try baking it without starch first. I had white ribbon get a pink ting to it one time. Seriously, how did that happen? LOL

I never used to starch before baking (this is something new for me). I'm sorry it happened to you too

I'm definitely going to change my recipe for korkers now!

I use fabric stiffener all the time (you can spray either lightly or more heavily). But I wanted to try the starch method (it was a big fat fail!) lol

And when the ribbon is dotted, put a piece of foil over the pan to keep the direct heat off the ink.

Oh, and turn the heat down to 255 for 35-40 minutes for the dots
im gonna hafta try that- i had problems with the dots bleeding and it was a HUGE mess.. lol
