Iron-on transfers for clothing are designed to last. They are durable and stay on for a long time, however, sometimes a dryer can be too hot and the iron on transfer begins to peel at the edges. This is a simple fix and can be remedied within a few minutes.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Lay the garment with the peeling iron-on transfer on a flat surface. Smooth out any wrinkles with your hands.

  2. 2

    Lay a piece of waxed paper over the design that has started to peel. Make sure that the waxed paper covers the whole design.

  3. 3

    Place the hot clothes iron over the top of the waxed paper. Move the iron back and forth over the area that is beginning to peel.

  4. 4

    Check your design every ten seconds to see if it is starting to re-adhere.

Tips and warnings

  • Turn your garment inside out when washing, this will help keep the design from snagging on zippers, buttons and other things that can make the transfer peel again.
  • Do not place the garment in the dryer, allow to air dry. Some dryers are too hot and make the design peel.
