Because we want to help you succeed with WarmPEEL Universal, we created a five minute how-to video and also a step-by-step overview of the main points. Our WarmPEEL Universal instructional video includes recommended blade pressure and step-by-step instructions for applying it to cotton t-shirts, blended apparel, sports jerseys, nylon jackets, can coolers, tennis shoes, jeans, tote bags, wood and glass items.
