When you are finished with your masterpiece,  spray the ink designs with the rubbing alcohol to make it ‘bleed and run’Continue until you are happy with the resultsALLOW TO DRY FOR at least 1 hour.

When the shirt is COMPLETELY dry, put in the dryer for 15 minutes to set. 

We have not had a problem with the ink coming off onto other clothing in the wash, but test for your own results.
