Solar Fast keeps developing
  • Hello !

    I have quite a problem...On thin cotton textile (sheets for example), the ink seems to still develop even after a laundry with solar fast wash....
    I also has happened to me on t-shirts. The ink would leak out of the design, just like if was too much paint.

    I hope you can help ! It's quite problematic as I sell my items and am afraid of the developing after they're sold !

    thank you.

  • Really the answer is about the same as the one about paper. Soaking has been my go to method for awhile. Somehow just soaking in the Solar Fast really removes the dye. I made this video about screen printing solar fast, but the washing step for clothing including rinsing from behind in hot water is really helpful I think. It is the method i have used most successfully.
