How to wash a Personalised T-Shirt
If you have ever created your own personalised T-Shirt you’ll know how much fun it can be coming up with designs, choosing the best way to transfer it to your T-Shirt and then of course wearing it so that you an broadcast your individuality and personality to all around you.
However keeping custom made shirts clean is a little more work than your other laundry, so you need to be more careful when washing a T-Shirt with your personalised design.
Preparing Fabric Paint
Preparing Iron on T-Shirt Transfers
If you’ve bought an iron on transfer or even made your own using an inkjet printer you can help to protect your design by spraying it with a water repellent like Scotch Guard.
Spray both the front of the design and the back by turning the T-shirt inside out.
With both the above varieties of T-shirts, but particularly with iron on transfers it is safest to wash shirts separately from your regular laundry with a reduced amount of washing detergent, (approximately ¼ the normal recommended amount.) You can further protect your designs by washing the T-shirts inside out.
If the T-shirts have picked up stains that won’t be removed without a more intensive washing procedure you should hand wash the shirt so that you can tackle the stain individually.
Professionally Printed T-Shirts
Professional personalised T-Shirts companies that print designs on T-Shirts use special screen printing inks and heat presses to seal the designs, this means that they can be washed as you would a normal shop bought printed T-Shirt. If you want to create a personalised design with a long lasting image that is easy to maintain it might be worth looking into having a shirt professionally printed.
