Vaatelaastari® is suitable for most textiles. Textiles that are coated or contain a lot of chemicals, such as fabric softeners, may have a lower washability. Due to the large number of variables, it is not possible to make an exact promise about the washing duration. At its best, Vaatelaastari® lasts for years in place, in use and in washing. At the very least, if used correctly, it should last several washes without coming off. Slight creasing of the edges over time is a characteristic of adhesive patches. If desired, the edges can be cut with clean scissors.
You can cut Clothing Patches® if you wish.
