Clear n' Melt

stitcheasy2003September 27, 2006


Has anyone used Clear N' Melt (equal to Trick Film Iron away stabilizer)on

t-shirts or towels or napkins etc.

It says its a permanent stabilizer? You just tearaway the rest of the stabilizer after embroidery is done and then iron (if you need to remove more).

Would it uphold as good as no show polymesh on a t-shirt? On towels and napkins its nice to see no stabilizer to show.Thank you.

I always use WSS for towels and napkins so I imagine your product would be fine.
For T shirts, why not try on an old one, wear it and wash it and see what happens? I have always used a polymesh but why not have a go?

All three items require different stabilizers. You might be able to use it for napkins and other linens.

The reason you use an iron on for t-shirts is to stabilize the whole area to prevent stretching or distortion while embroidering. You still need WSS as a topper for towels and tearaway bits wash out.

Most of the embroidery machine books that come with machines pretty well cover the stabilizer questions.
