Attaching the label
Set dry iron on medium high temperature (290°F to 370°F, or 130°C to 170°C). Remove any wrinkles from fabric by ironing the section where you want to place the label. Place the label on the fabric.

Repeat 3 times with a focus on the label corners, allowing sufficient cooling between each repetition.
