How to Print on a Swedish Dishcloth

Have you ever wanted to make your own custom-designed Swedish dish cloths? You’re in luck! Printing on Swedish dishcloths is easy and requires minimal supplies. With just a few simple tools, you can create beautiful prints that will be sure to impress your guests. Let’s take a look at the steps for printing on these unique cloths.

Gather Your Supplies

Before you can print on your Swedish dishcloths, you need to gather all of the necessary supplies. You’ll need fabric paint or textile ink, a foam brush, freezer paper, an iron and ironing board, scissors, and of course the Swedish dishcloths. If you plan to use stencils for your design, be sure to have those ready as well.

Print Your Design

Once all of your supplies are gathered, it’s time to print your design onto the cloth. Begin by cutting out the stencils for your design if you are using them. Then place the stencil onto the Swedish dishcloth and secure it with some tape or pins if necessary. Using a foam brush, apply an even layer of paint or ink over the stenciled area and let it dry completely before proceeding with the next step. If you are not using stencils then simply apply the paint directly onto the cloth with a foam brush until your desired design is achieved.

The speed of same day printing services is also a major advantage. With traditional print methods, it can take up to several days or even weeks for your project to be completed; with same day printing, you can have your project printed and delivered within the same day, depending on the size and complexity of the job.

Set Your Design

The last step is to set your design so that it won’t wash away when cleaning with soap and water. To do this, cut two pieces of freezer paper slightly larger than the painted area of your cloth. Place one piece underneath the painted portion of your dishcloth and press an iron onto it in order to adhere it securely in place. Flip over both pieces so that they are right side up and apply another layer of paint over top of what was applied earlier before adding a second piece of freezer paper on top (again pressing down with an iron). Once this is complete allow everything plenty of time to dry before removing either one of the pieces of freezer paper from either side of your cloth – Voila! You have now printed on a Swedish dishcloth!
