I've just re-washed after printing my artwork (black ink only as these are from drawings) on 100% cotton muslin (not on my good fabrics yet
I ironed 4 of the 5 printed panels on the back to heat seal - did not heat seal the 5th panel so I can see if it makes any difference...
This is simply to test the colour fastness/degree of fading.
Threw the all the printed panels inside an old pillow case and used a hair tie to fasten it shut...before chucking them into the washer again hot cycle with a little bit of regular detergent.
I'm using a very basic HP Deskjet 1000 inkjet printer - no pre-treatment (i.e. bubble jet set or anything like that) all the 8 1/2 x 11 panels are now in the dryer again...
