Guidelines for Washing Heat Transferred T-shirts

After you have done a successful heat transfer, the next thing is to let your customers know the washing guidelines. In general, the following guidelines should be followed.

  • Wash the t-shirt with newly transferred image before wearing it.
  • Wait for 24 hours before you wash T-shirt with newly transferred image.
  • When washing, make sure the T-shirt is inside out, and do not use aggressive detergent or bleach.
  • If using tumble dry, use regular setting; don't do prolonged setting; dry inside-out.

When your t-shirt with your favorite image gets worn out, you can improve the colors of the transferred image. Place a grease-proof paper directly on top of the image, and iron over the grease-proof paper for a few seconds. Then peel off the grease-proof paper immediately while it's still hot (for light color transfer) or after cooling off (for dark transfer paper).
