Desperately Seeking Storage

« on: December 17, 2003 10:00:19 AM »

I bought some antique iron-ons (from the '40s or '50s) and I have NO CLUE at what temperature/setting I should use them on.  Additionally, I have no idea if they'll do OK in the washing machine afterwards.  

Any ideas???  I'd hate to ruin them because they're so damn cool!

as long as you cover them with a pressing cloth (i.e. old tea towel) they should be fine.

i'd go for a hot-ish temperature, as they usually need quite a high heat to melt the glue...

let us know how you get on  Grin
