To use regular Wet N Gone® for free standing lace and/or embroideries:
Hoop one layer of the stabilizer within the embroider frame. Try to achieve "tight as a drum" tension without stretching or distorting the stabilizer.
Embroider the design.
Remove the product from the hoop and trim away as much of the stabilizer as possible.
Rinse away the Wet N Gone® using luke warm water. *Tip - If your desire is to have the lace stiff, simply get the embroidery wet. Don't rinse! Once it is wet, the stabilizer will be absorbed into the stitching and will dry stiff.
**Note: Not all lace is considered “Free Standing”. If your desire is to have the embroidery stand on its own, please make sure the packaging states the design is “Free Standing Lace Embroidery”. If you have any doubt, include one layer of nylon organza in the embroidery frame with the Wet N Gone.
