Default How to get pre treat stains out of printed garment

Hi, I'm hoping for a solution to the attached pic. After pre-treating and printing I'm seeing these marks at the bottom of the hoodies, any ideas on how to get them out? Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Alison,
Try a couple things:
- using less pretreat; sometimes it yields a better print especially if its 100% cotton
- when you spray the pretreat, place the garment on heat press and hover heat over garment for approximately 40 seconds, then press (6-7 pressure) approximately 45 seconds before printing.

You might be left with a little haze, but it goes away.
Its completely gone after one wash.

Thanks for that, I think I've managed to get them out by washing and using Borax and Washing Soda. I'll give that a go next time. Thanks again Alison
