For most folks, removing ink from fabrics is a priority, but occasionally you may want to set ink so it doesn't come out. Whether you've created an elaborate design, or your kids are just signing end-of-year autographs on their friends' T-shirts, start with a fabric marker designed for permanent fabric use. Instructions for setting the ink vary depending on the manufacturer, so always check the package directions.
Things You'll Need
- Clean, white cloth
- 1/2 cup salt
Set the iron on medium high and wait one minute for it to warm up.
Place your fabric on the ironing board with the design face up.
Place a clean, white cotton cloth over it to protect the fabric from scorching.
Iron smoothly over the cotton cloth for 10 seconds, moving the iron in a circular motion so all areas are heated.
Dry the garment in the dryer on a regular cycle.
Wait 24 hours. Pour 1/2 cup of salt into the washer and fill the washer with cold water.
Wash the garment on a regular cold cycle. Don't use detergent. Dry the garment in the dryer.
