If you’ve bought an iron on transfer or
even made your own using an inkjet printer you can help to protect your

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 Â¼ 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

shirt so that you can tackle the stain individually.

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.
