Default Washing print your own ribbon

After you have made any of the print your own ribbon that is so popular these days do you wash it before making it into bows, keychains or whatever? I've never made any of the print your own stuff and I just got some transfer paper and it says to wash the "garment" before wearing. Just wondering if that applies to ribbon usage as well.

Thanks ladies!

I found the instructions and it did say to wash your ribbon in the sink with mild soap, rinse well and hang to dry. When dry iron flat before printing. I have made my transfers but have not gotten around to washing the ribbon yet. Let me know how you do yours and if it turns out well for you. Hope this helps. Thanks Tamara

I don't ever remember anyone saying that they wash it.

This is where I found my instructions. It does say the washing is optinal but for best results it should be washed. Tamara

It's just because any fabric, (and most ribbon is made of polyester or cotton) has a sizing to it, which only comes off in the wash. I've found that the transferred image wears or scratches off if the ribbon isn't washed, but what a pain!
