bleaching wood

>I just finished bleaching an ash bowl using A and B bleach. Inorder to get the desired color, I had to repeat the process. The instruction say that if you repeat the process that you should coat the the wood with white vinegar. I assume this is to nurturalize the effects of the bleach on the finishing process. My problem is I used white vinegar on the cap and ice cycle made of holly for a christmas tree orniment after double bleaching. It gave them a greenish tint. I don't want that to happen on this bowl. I was wondering if any of you have had experience with A and B bleach and how important that it is use white vinegar when you repeat the process?
