If the proper application and washing instructions are followed, the stones will last the life of the garment. If you are applying the transfers, please refer to our transfer guide (click here). The care instructions are cold wash inside out and lay flat to dry. Even if these rules and guidelines are not followed, the proper application of these machine cut crystals will endure the worst of habits.
What fabrics do not work?
Fabrics negatively affected by heat such as velvet, acrylic, silk, polyamide, PVC, silicone or fabrics with a wax finish and some rayon will not work.. Rhinestones will not stick to non-porous surfaces such as glass, plastic, rubber, metal or leather (because of the oil in the leather and the heat will cause the scorching of the material)
You should always pre-test a piece of the fabric and use Teflon to protect the material. Common sense should be used.
NOTE: The 6ix rhinestone experts will always use Teflon when applying your transfers on your garment.
