I just finished my first (very simple) stencil!! I'm about to heat set it but I just noticed the bottle of textile medium said to heat set then allow to dry for 7 days. Is this really necessary?? It seems a bit extreme to me especially since I'm really eager to wear my new shirt!! Does anyone actually wait 7 days to wear their creations?? I'm willing to wait if it might ruin my shirt..otherwise I wanna wear it tomorrow!!

I've never seen that written on any acrylic medium before, what make is it?  I would have thought if it was dry and you heat set it you would be good to go.

I saw that on my fabric medium too. I just ironed it when it was dry to the touch and threw it in the washer. I didn't have ANY problem with that. I don't know why it recommends 7 days.
