H20 Gone Water Dissolvable Stabilizer Leaves No Fiber Residue

HTC H2Gone_1

Create gorgeous free-standing appliqués that can be used to decorate apparel or create emblems with H20 Gone, a water dissolvable stabilizer from HTC Retail. With H20 Gone, once a project is complete, all remaining stabilizer pieces are easily removed by soaking the embroidery in warm water.

In most cases, one layer will do the job because H20 Gone has a unique construction that makes it stronger than traditional films. This soft, sheer stabilizer leaves no fiber residue. If preferred, it can even be run through the gentle cycle of the washer for removal.

H20 Gone is ideal for embroidering on fleece blankets, handkerchiefs, free-standing lace, napkins, towels, and other similar applications where both sides of the piece are visible.
