The video on this page demonstrates the best way to apply press n wear HTV to athletic clothes without damaging the fabric of the HTV. Athletic fabrics tend to respond poorly to heat, so you need to make sure you don’t leave intense heat on the fabric for too long. In the video, the host says to try applying heat in short bursts of less than 10 seconds. Make sure you allow the fabric to cool down before trying again.
