Ironing time varies according to the size of your transfer. We recommend 3 minutes for a full page transfer, 2 minutes for a 1/2 page transfer, and 1 minute for a 1/4 page transfer. First make slow, 20 second passes across the transfer, from left to right. Next make slow, 20 second passes across the transfer, from top to bottom.
