100% – the patch is completely covered with stitching
Iron On – Heat seal backing allows a patch to be ironed on to a garment. Once ironed on, the patch should remain in place permanently. You can also sew it on to ensure that it won’t come off.
How to Apply Using a Household Iron
Gather together the following items:
- A household iron (preferably one without an auto-shut off)
- A pressing cloth (a thin piece of cotton or muslin fabric or smooth, lightweight cotton towel or piece of old t-shirt works well). A thick single sheet or doubled up if thin, dry paper towel works fine.
- A firm piece of cardboard covered in aluminum foil or other firm heat-safe backing material
Following are detailed steps to adhere an iron on patch. It is not hard and 99% of the time the process is quick and very easy. Difficulties usually only arise with very unusual fabrics or faulty household irons that don't reach proper temperatures.
- Set iron to "dry" not steam setting.
- Pre-heat to cotton setting (or if unsure of your fabric, one or two settings lower).
- Position your patch as desired and cover with the pressing cloth.
- Place the backing underneath between your garment or project and the iron board. The backing board helps reflect heat back to the patch and garment rather than drawing heat into the ironing board cover speeding up the process and ensuring a flat, secure bond..
- From the front of the patch, press the iron flat in an up and down, vertical motion (do not move back/forth/around) for 25 to 40 seconds to tack the patch in place using the center part of your iron.
- Turn inside out or upside down (if possible) and still using the pressing cloth, repeat from reverse side for 30 to 45 seconds.
- ALLOW the patch and your item to cool, completely.
- Test an edge of the patch with your fingernail to ensure it is secure.
- If not, repeat increasing the amount of time 10% - 20% each time taking care to ensure the patch and fabric are protected.
Warning: Do not remove the patch if you fail on your first attempt or you will damage the adhesive. Just repeat the steps with additional time. Some household irons just don't get hot enough as they do not have temperature gauges. The goal is to melt the glue into the fiber without scorching or burning the fabric or the patch.
