Step 1: Prepare Your Item

Before applying the patch, ensure the item you are patching is clean and wrinkles-free. If you are restoring a piece of clothing, washing and drying it beforehand is best. This will ensure that the patch adheres properly and stays in place.

Step 2: Heat Your Iron

Plug in your iron and set it to the highest heat setting. Turn off the steam function, which can interfere with the patch application process.

Step 3: Position the Patch

Place the item you are patching on the ironing board or a towel. Then, position the patch on the object in the desired location. Use pins or tape to hold the patch in place if needed.

Step 4: Protect Your Patch

To protect your patch from direct heat, place a thin cloth or parchment paper over it. This will prevent the patch from melting or getting damaged during the ironing process.

Step 5: Apply Heat

Press the iron firmly over the patch and hold it in place for 10-15 seconds. Make sure to apply pressure evenly over the entire patch. This will activate the adhesive on the back of the patch and help it adhere to the item.

Step 6: Check the Adhesion

After applying heat, carefully lift the corner of the patch to check if it is sticking to the item. If it is not fully adhered to, repeat step 5 until it is securely in place.

Step 7: Let it Cool

Once the patch is fully adhered, let it cool for a few minutes. This will allow the adhesive to set and ensure the patch stays in place.

Step 8: Test the Adhesion

After the patch has cooled, gently pull on it to test the adhesion. If it comes off easily, repeat steps 5-7 until securely in place.
