Another experiment with these cute and popular Hoodies

When they arrived they looked like this

Following a forum tip I put them in the microwave for 2 minutes and they turned out like this

The whiteness of the base material is still an issue but this size is perfect and the colours are good.

Awesome!!

Microwaving your hoodies must have been an anxious moment?

Did you do them all at once?

Yes it was anxious, you should of seen how they looked at me as I was putting them in the microwave but I knew it was for the best. I experimented with one just to make sure. It was good seeing them stood up inside as they rotated round their colour coming through.

Yeah.. that would have been an awesome youtube moment =D

Anyway, they look cool! Any specific microwave setting or just full power?


If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much!

And, what wattage was your microwave? I've been meaning to try something similar with one of my full-color models, but I know my microwave is a little bit lower-powered than the average one...


When in doubt... Duct tape!

Thanks, I had a look at my microwave but couldn't find a wattage. Suggest experimenting with 30 second spurts at full power until you get results you are happy with.

these look really great. The microwave pass makes quite a difference.
