How to care for your iron on patches

  1. Wash clothing inside out: When washing clothing with iron-on patches, turn the garment inside out to protect the patch from direct contact with the washing machine and other clothing items.
  2. Use cold water: Wash the garment in cold water to prevent the iron-on patch from melting or coming loose.
  3. Hang dry or tumble dry on low: Avoid drying the garment in high heat, as this can cause the patch to come loose or melt. Instead, hang the garment to dry or tumble dry on low heat.
  4. Avoid dry cleaning: Dry cleaning can damage iron-on patches, so it is best to avoid it altogether.
  5. Do not iron directly on the patch: If the patch becomes loose or starts to peel, do not try to reattach it by ironing it directly. This can cause the patch to melt or become misshapen. Instead, apply a new patch or try sewing the original patch back onto the garment.
  6. Store clothing carefully: When storing clothing with iron-on patches, fold it carefully and avoid placing heavy items on top of it. This will prevent the patch from becoming misshapen or damaged.

By following these care tips, you can ensure that your iron-on patches remain in good condition for as long as possible, allowing you to enjoy your customized clothing and accessories for years to come.
