Remove High Vis dye from a heat press

Made a newbie mistake, and printed some high vis vests without a top sheet covering the whole heat press :shake:

All was OK, until I came to print some white garments, and they've turned yellow :yikes:

I've tried IPA, 3m Surface Cleaner, General service cleaner, water, but it's not for shifting.

Any suggestions what will shift it from the heat press?

Hey Dave,

Never seen this before. What brand of vests were they? All should of been fine.

I have picked up other inks/ stains before. Am pretty sure I used thinners once. Just give the plate a good scrub. And find a spare garment and press it a hundred times over.

Dave
keep pressing a piece of polyester it should go, tip when pressing dye sub shirts especially football kits etc use grease proof paper cheap enough to keep changing after each shirt if need be and saves contaminating your teflon sheet and platen

I just wipe the teflon sheet with IPA if any contamination

Yes Kev, I heard grease proof paper is ideal, and have 2 rolls at the ready.

Teflon sheets too, the trouble being I didnt use either for these few vests so not anything bot covered 100% turns yellow.
