Removing Streaky Swirly Impressions


Q:  After finishing I have noticed that some of the garments have dark streaks and swirls in some areas. What causes this?

A: This is usually caused by vacuuming the garment dry while the head of the press is down. This can be corrected by steaming the garment thoroughly to remove swirls and refinishing the garment. When finishing, arrange the garment, apply head pressure, raise the head, and vacuum dry.
