I dunno where else to post this on the web?
I have a Gray hoodie with a black Adidas logo. The hoodie is like brand new but when it was washed once the logo looks years old. How can I restore it? I thought about using a sharpie but the smell lol.

Its more faded than it looks in the picture.

Can you feel the ink of the print, or does it feel the same as the fabric?

If the latter, it may be a sublimation print on a cotton/poly blend hoodie. Sublimation only works on polyester, so at the first wash any ink on the cotton will wash out. I sell some shirts printed this way, but I wash them before the customer sees them, and call them a faded vintage style print.

Regardless, what you do is talk to where you got it from. There is no fixing it other than replacing it.

I bought it on ebay a couple years ago, I liked the design. The print feels exactly like the fabric. I got bored and decided to just use a sharpie.... It looks brand new now. I watched some youtube vids that said cure it with heat. I used a heatgun and then an iron on it. Hopefully it lasts.
