Default How can I get a vibrant white discharge print on black hoodies?

When I print white discharge ink on a 10oz heavyweight black 70% cotton, 30% poly blend hoodie, the quality is very low. It prints fine and looks very bright, problems occur when I stretch or scratch it. It cracks immediately and flakes and peels right off, I notice that it is not setting and absorbing in the hoodie like the red discharge is that Ive used. Why is this? Ive tried everything I can think of. I have no off contact, I use a high durometer squeegee, Ive even added water to the white to see if the hoodie will absorb it more. But still it just sits on top of the garment? Im using ecotex discharge white and ecotex discharge agent from screenprintdirect. This is the only issue I have and has cost me a bunch of money and weeks of time wasted. I cannot fix this problem. I dont wanna use plastisol because im working at home and its too hard to work with using the equipment I have. I also do not like the feel of plastisol at all. Any suggestions?

you should switch to the hanes ultimate cotton for discharge printing it is 90/10 and cotton topped you will have much better results

Thanks for your quick response. I have tried the hanes ultimate and they are just too expensive for me to be buying in bulk. Im using independent trading co and they are much cheaper and way better quality in my opinion. They are also cotton topped. All the other discharge inks I have used worked perfectly, except the white.

I was trying to use independent sweatshirts over the hanes and they were not as consistent than the Hanes. The hanes is perfect every time and the independent issues with the discharge in small areas every so often that I found myself having several in a run that wouldn't pass.
