    I'm sorry to have to say this, but vinegar doesn't always work. I gave up on vinegar years ago. Salt, too. That's why I buy Retayne, Shout color Catchers and Synthrapol.

    I use SHout Color Catcher in the wash with all my colored clothes.

    I have always used white vinegar to set dyes. Have never had a problem.
