It makes sense because vinegar is used to set dye. When using some fabrics for quilts you use a vinegar bath to set the dye so when the quilt is made and washed the colors won't bleed.

I have not done this... never baked or starched, either-BUT I soak new (bright/ dark) clothes in vinegar/ water before their first wash to prevent fading. I guess that's where the idea came from... to use it for color-fastness. I wouldn't have guessed that it'd work on prints that are more like "screen printing" than "dyed." KWIM?

Attempt 2: FAILED

I sprayed with vinegar, put in the oven for 18 minutes at 220. Bow is no longer shocking pink with white dots. It is shocking pink, again with splotches of purple (although not as bad as last time) and the white dots are now light pink.

I just put another in at 200....

Should I let the vinegar dry before baking? Would that make a difference?

I am determined now to figure something out!!!

Maybe you should wet the ribbon (like dunk it in a bowl) so that it's uniformly wet with the vinegar/ water solution. That may help with the purple splotching; but I'm not so sure about the fading of the dots. Using vinegar in the wash is supposed to remove residues... that's why I wasn't so sure about how it's work for the printed ribbon...
Drying before baking might help.
I also use a salt water soak for new black clothes.... wonder what effect that might have on printed ribbon? I guess I'll be "searching" later.

At this rate, i'm going to need a microwave and oven in my craft room, LOL.

I have just learned to make the classic bows correctly so I haven't baked a thing~yet. Thanks for posting this.

My success story~

I put the bow in the oven for about 3-5 minutes just to get it warm (I figured it would make the vinegar solution dry faster and I am inpatient! LOL).

Pulled the bow out, lightly sprayed with 50/50 vinegar water solution, let dry for 10-15 minutes.

Put the bow back in the oven at 200 degrees for 15-18 minutes (I am terrible about watching the clock ).

PERFECTION!

Now I have 3 orders down .......6 more to go, see how I get side tracked trying something new?

that makes perfect sense! My mom does the same. lol. Good idea. I always have my dots bleed when making korkers!

I have the same problem with my maroon and white polka dot ribbon when I am making korkers. I will have to give that a try. Thanks for sharing and all your trail and error work.

Krista,
Stay away from the kitchen! How many times do I need to tell you, ribbon doesn't taste good, no matter how and what you put on it!

I bet that smelled good! Putting a 1/2 cup to 1 cup in new colored clothes in the washer is suppose to keep them bright without fading and seal in the colors, but baking?!
