When unpacking a new shirt or sweatshirt, you might notice a vinegar-like smell or an off-white residue. Don’t worry, that’s not unusual, it’s from a fixation agent applied during the printing process and it’s not permanent. Fixation agent (sometimes known as pre-treatment) helps the ink bond with the fabric, and without it, the ink would flake off the garment. All inks used are water-based and eco-friendly. The solution is simply to wash the garment! Neither the residue nor the smell is permanent and both should go away after one wash.
