Interesting.... I had to google it after your comment. Here was an article on setting dye: http://www.ehow.com/how_2068286_set-dye.html but it says it only works in natural fibers (and it includes salt!)

I also found this info interesting: http://www.pburch.net/dyeing/FAQ/settingdye.shtml which says salt will prevent the fabric from repelling the dye.

I wonder if salt in with your vinegar/ water mixture would decrease risk for color transfer...

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?!
Actually DH had come home yesterday while the first attempt was baking and says to Cullen "Oh it smells like mommy is cooking something good for dinner!"

Me: "You will be sadly disappointed if you open that oven!"

How are we supposed to cook dinner when we have to cook bows?

Tried it again with black and white polka dot ribbon and it was fine! I do think I let it dry a little, because I had to wait for other bows to bake before I put it in!
