Default Item Enhancers on one-shots

Can you play an item enhancer on a usable once only item? Specifically, can you play "of my Grandfather" on a usable once only item? This just came up in a game. I let it go because the game would have been over if I hadn't allowed it, and anyway, I won. But I still want to know, was playing the Pretty Balloons (or something) of my Grandfather a legal move?

I've encountered this before and ruled it good for the game. As for whether that jibes with the official ruling... I searched and searched in the past and just now with "item enhancer" as the keyword and I can't find a ruling in rules, FAQ, or munchkin forums. As long as the item enhancer doesn't say it affects only headgear, etc., I would reckon that an in-play one-shot item that gives a combat bonus (albeit for one combat) fits the definition of what an item enhancer can be played on.

I would be interested to see the official ruling.

It just occurred to me I never looked in munchkin 101, so caveat.

As long as the one-shot fits the criteria on the Item Enhancer (usually just "an Item that gives a combat bonus"), then you may play the enhancer if you wish, but you must play it at the same time you play the one-shot. After a one-shot is played, it can't be enhanced anymore.

Could you play the Enhancer on a One-Shot item that you are carrying?

I see nothing on most Item Enhancers that would disallow it.

Note that I am not saying it's a good idea.
