About pretreatment
If a T-shirt to which the pretreatment is applied is coated with only color inks, its stains tend to be wiped off by
washing. Avoid application of the pretreatment when no white ink is used.
When a white or light-colored T-shirt is coated with the pretreatment, the coated surface color may change, and
be restored to the original color even if the T-shirt is washed. After a T-shirt is coated with the
pretreatment, store it in a place where it is not exposed to direct sunlight, and wash it with clean water at an
early stage after ink is applied to it.
Wash away any imprint of the pretreatment with water. Also, some T-shirts may be discolored by the
pretreatment and

clean of dirt with a soft and clean cloth or a toothbrush that is moistened with a small amount of mild detergent
for home use or alcohol.
 Wash away any imprint of the pretreatment by washing (with water).
