spot cleaning

1529 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  tpitman
Could anyone explain to me to what extent spot cleaning can be used to clean a shirt? I used water based inks and say that I have a design that wasnt cured properly and faded during a wash test. Could I use a spot cleaning gun to blast the whole design off the shirt or does it only work for small stains? Also how much do these guns typically cost?

im sure ur able to but why wast time and all that when u can easily just pick up another shirt and print
I don't know how well the cleaning fluid works on waterbased, but the stuff is expensive enough that it isn't worth trying to remove an entire design from a shirt. Shirts are pretty cheap by comparison. The spot cleaning guns and chemistry are really just designed to remove small smudges, fingerprints, and so on. Plus, the stuff is nasty. I use it only when necessary and then as little as possible. If I have a printing error on a shirt, I print a new shirt.
