Default Vinegar

Has anyone tried mixing idye poly up in vinegar?
I do tie dye shirts and I know that general purpose dye will dye synthetic blends if vinegar is mixed with it. Does this also work with discs?

I can't think of any reason it wouldn't work. But what does it gain you over water?

I read once, and I dont remeber where, that acids help to dye protein rich fibers, such as polyester or silk. For protein poor fibers(cotten) bases helps the dye.

So, I know a bit of chemistry, but not enough to know if the acids will help with the proteins in the types of plastics our discs are made of. I know it doesnt work as well with nylon.

I guess I just need to do a test if no one else has tried it. I will post back in a couple days with the results

I could see that I suppose. You should run a test and dye half a disc with vinegar mix for 1 hr and then other half with water mix of the same concentration and see which is darker.

No doubt that would be the best test, but I don't have enough dye on hand to make up two pots. I will mix up small batches and do smaller portions of the disc.
I also want to try a 10% acetone to water mix

The original post asks about idye poly- which already dyes discs well, are you trying to get the regular idye to work on discs?
