    Default Ironing swimwear???

    Okay wise ones of bubhub, has anyone ever tried putting iron on labels on swimwear or rashies or am I just crazy for contemplating it? I tried to google it, but couldn't find anything helpful. DS1 has swimming with school next week and they want everything labelled.
    I guess I could go out and get a fabric marker, but his rashie is black, so that is going to be a little tricky.
    Help!

    I would think the swimwear material would melt under that kind of heat

    You can get white markers I think. It will melt with the iron.

    You might be best to sew a label into them.

    Thank you ladies, you've just saved me killing some swimwear. SPG, I just thought of sew on labels, but sewing is not really my thing (either is ironing, clearly).
    Off to buy some fabric markers 😊

    You might be able to use an iron on label on the tag. I've done this on toys with a tag on them.

    Default Ironing swimwear???

    I came to look at the thread because I thought there was some sort of discussion on a new level of OCD to go with ironing underwear and tea towels. Derrrr..... 😋
