E-ZeeTear® Washaway 1.5 oz. is a medium weight Tear Away backing that washes away in the wash cycle.

Use when the back side of embroidery may be visible such as with linens and towels. Great for medium size designs. Excess backing is torn away after embroidery is done and prior to laundering. The small pieces that remain will wash away during the first wash.*

For use with:

  • Tightly woven fabric

How to use:
Be sure that your hands and work area are dry before handling. Cut a piece from a roll or use a piece of pre-cut E-Zee Tear® Washaway 1.5 oz. to fit your hoop size. Hoop by placing the backing underneath the garment. Embroider the design and remove the embroidered item from the hoop. Tear the excess backing away from the design. Remove as many pieces from inside the design as possible. Run the garment through a wash cycle of a machine to remove the excess backing*.

Helpful hint: 
Depending on water conditions, several washes may be necessary to remove all excess backing. 

Please note:
This product tears away easily leaving a small amount of residual fuzz around the edges of embroidered designs that slowly dissipate and wash away. Click Here if you are looking for a washaway backing that can be used for Free Standing Lace (FSL) and easily washes away,
