How to Remove HTV Vinyl From Shirts and use HTV Remover:
1. Firstly, start by turning the garment inside out.
2. Now get the garment wet with the solvent. But first, we recommend doing a swatch test.
3. Put the remover on a corner of your shirt to make sure the color of the garment does not fade away because of the remover.
4. Now, after the swatch test, apply the remover to the area that you want to remove.
5. The adhesive side of the vinyl to be removed would get soaked well with the remover. This was the purpose of turning the shirt inside-out. Hence, the remover will reach the underside of the vinyl.
6. After applying the remover on the underside of the vinyl, flip the shirt back to normal so that it is no longer inside out.
7. This step is important to loosen up the adhesive of the HTV. Stretch the garment around the vinyl you want to remove in 4 different directions.
8. Lastly, carefully peel the vinyl off the garment immediately after stretching the garment.
