Default Vinegar Before Baking?

Ok so someone posted here a while ago about spraying prints with 50/50 water/vinegar to keep them from discoloring when baking.

So I tried it today for the first time with shocking pink ribbon with white polka dots and uh....

Not only did the white dots turn pink, parts of the ribbon look burned and have turned a purplish color!!!!!!

I just sprayed it on and put it in the oven, 275 for about 25 minutes.

Did I do something wrong? Has anyone had success with the vinegar tip?

If you do something else, mind sharing?

Thanks!

Krista

HAHA! I know that is why it took me so long to get up the courage to try it. It smelled awful at first, but now the bow doesnt smell at all, and I would know, I am 7 months pregnant and NO smell escapes this nose!

It would be great if it does work, maybe I just did something wrong, is the vinegar suposed to dry first? Should I bake at a lower temp? Spray more..less? Etc.

That tip sounds odd to me, because when you're dying easter eggs, you add vinegar to make the color more vivid (meaning you are increasing the risk of color transfer). Definitely lower the temp & Mika mentioned on here awhile ago to lay some aluminum foil over your ribbon to prevent direct heat from the element from overheating your ribbon. See if that makes a difference. It seems logical to me.

Also, I have better luck when I starch after baking when it comes to trying to avoid color transfer. I now bake dry & starch afterwards. If I am in a huge hurry, I will microwave the bow for 30 seconds to speed dry.

This was my thought too, but then I guess maybe it makes the white stand out more as well?

Before using this tip, I baked at lower temps, less time, starched before, starched after, starched both before and after, nothing has really helped thus far, so I am hopeful this will work, even though I hate the smell of the vinegar!

You dilute it 50/50 white vinegar and water, it still smells a little, but after it dries there is no smell!!!! My mother uses an open jar of vinegar in her kitchen for odors, and as it evaporates you can't smell it anymore! Kinda same concept I guess!?!?!? I only tried one bow, but I wanna try some more today!
