You can use a hair straightener to seal an iron-on patch; it’s usually easier and faster than using a standard iron. You’ll need to warm it up first, position the iron patch where you want it, then clamp the warmed hair straightener over the patch on the fabric. Hold in place for about 30 to 60 seconds.
How do you keep an iron-on patch from falling off?
I recommend using a medium hot iron, and covering the patch with a thin handkerchief (or other thin fabric) while ironing it onto the garment. Press down hard for a few seconds, then keep the iron moving to prevent sticking, keep this up for 2–3 minutes.
