*Be sure when washing these specific garments that they are always turned inside out and that you are choosing a delicate cycle with cold or warm water (never hot) to protect the vinyl from unwanted damage.
*Using a mild detergent will not only allow you to properly clean your heat transfers, but also to maintain your garments for longer periods of time as well.
*You can use the dryer at a low temperature, but it is far more beneficial to preserve your heat transfers by hanging your freshly washed clothing up to dry. This will not only reduce the wrinkles that are produced during the washing cycle, but also prevent excessive heat exposure during the drying cycle from damaging your designs.
* if you must iron your customized garments, NEVER iron directly over the heat transferred design. Ironing the design directly could cause damage to the vinyl.
To avoid this you can place a dish towel over the design to act as a buffer, protecting the design from direct heat exposure. Please also remember to always use a low heat setting as this will minimize the amount of heat being applied to the design itself.
