I personally would redo the 4 (completely new). Trying to do ones that have been washed contain too many variables.

I'd bite the cost to be sure I would prevent any reoccuring instances.

Might also be worth testing one or two on your own just to be safe.

I do the recommended time and temp of 15 sec at 350 with easy weed and never had a problem. You should be able to re heat and fix them, you just gotta try it out you're gonna hve to remake them if it doesn't work anyway. Also I always recomend to clients to turn shirts inside out to wash for any kind of heat transfer.

Thank you so much for this information...I did press them again & they look good ...just so worried when they wash them it will come off again. What are your thoughts on that? Thank you!
