I have made a table runner and have used a graphic from "The Graphic Fairy" to use on the runner. Someone suggests there that they have used vinegar to set their ink and others say that it washes out. Has anyone ever had experience with this? Do you think heat setting might help hold the color when it is washed? Here is the tablerunner and would sure hate to have it wash out after all the work.
My mind is a garden. My thoughts are the seeds. My harvest will be either flower or weeds.
Hammerhugger, I am sorry I can't help you, but I wanted to tell you that I think your table runner is beautiful. I can certainly see why you want to make sure it remains in tact. Marylee
I would maybe ask on the quilting board.. and I too really like your runner.
Did you run the cloth thru your printer? I am sorry but it is late and my mind isn't working clearly. Just trying to figure out what you mean by "ink" which can be several things.
Your runner is beautiful!
Vinegar works with setting the dye in a new pair of blue jeans but I'm not sure I'd do it to your runner. You're probably going to have to heat set it with an iron. These links might help...

Sorry but your runner is not washable. It will wash out. How quickly depends on the type of ink in the printer -pigment or dye. The fabric needs to be pre-treated with a solution. Vinegar, heat, or salt will not set the ink to make it washable.
I can't help with your question but I wanted to tell you that the runner is beautiful!
