When unpacking a new shirt or hoodie you may sometimes notice a vinegary smell. Don't fear - the smell is from a fixing agent used in the printing process.

The agent is imperative in helping the ink bond with the fabric and without it quality would be significantly reduced.

The fixation agent is used across the DTG industry and the solution is to simply pop the garment in the wash. After one wash, the smell & residue will disappear.
