General Product Questions
Should I wear gloves when I use Simply Spray?Marianne RitterSometimes wearing gloves can cause more of a problem than you would think…. The paint will not absorb into the glove and will transfer onto your project.
What happens if I get Simply Spray on my skin?Marianne RitterYou can wash Simply Spray off your skin with regular soap, water and a little help from a washcloth. If you wash your hands immediately after using, the paint should come off with little effort.
Can I use this product indoors or does it have strong fumes?Marianne RitterSimply Spray is non-toxic, non-flammable and has no fume odours. The propellant in the can is very safe and is the same propellant used with food, such as whip cream. The propellant is odourless. Occasionally, you may smell a faint paint odour if you are using a large number of cans indoors. If you have sensitivities, you should use the product in a ventilated area to be on the safe side.
What happens if I get Simply Spray on my deck or cement?Marianne RitterWe always recommend that you cover your work area. Simply Spray will soak into your deck or cement and can be difficult to remove. You should wash the area with a steel brush and strong cleaner that won’t harm the surface.
I accidentally got some paint on my clothing, what can I do?Marianne RitterOne of the great things about many Simply Spray paints is that they are permanent on your project. When you accidentally get Simply Spray on your clothes…you want to wash them as soon as possible. You should wash your clothes using liquid fabric softener because fabric softener breaks down the pigment in the paint. Unfortunately, there’s not a universal solution to remove permanent paint from clothing, all material is different. Keep washing them and put soap directly on the paint and scrub using a washcloth for friction.
Do any of the Simply Spray colours work with blacklight?Marianne RitterYes, the Brite Pink Soft Fabric Paint and Glow in the Dark will react to blacklight.
Is it safe to use around pets?Marianne RitterSimply Spray is safe to use on fabrics that will be in contact with your pet, such as a pet bed. We do not recommend that you spray the paint on your pet or near your pet.
How long will it take painted projects to dry?Marianne RitterOn average, it will take about one hour for projects to dry. We recommend you wait 72 hours before washing.
Can I iron painted projects?Marianne RitterYou can iron directly over Simply Spray Soft Fabric Paint, but not Stencil Spray – do not iron Stencil Spray, it should be treated like silkscreen and care should be taken to avoid ironing it.
Do I have to heat set my project?Marianne RitterNO! One of the greatest things about Simply Spray is that it sets itself. You do not need to iron or put it in the dryer, just wait 72 hours before washing.
Can I wash my painted garments with other clothing or will it run?Marianne RitterWash separately the first time. After that, washing with like colours is recommended.
Will the colour fade after being washed?Marianne RitterYou should wait 72 hours before washing and its recommended to wash apparel at least once before paining. We recommend that you wash your garment inside out to minimize fading and do not use fabric softener. The first time you wash your garment you may notice a slight fade in color, but color will then remain vibrant.
My can will not spray again, what should I do?Marianne RitterDON’T PANIC! You might have pulled the trigger back too hard. If the trigger is pulled back too hard, it can “stick”. Simply put your index finger behind the blue trigger and push it forward. A “pop” or “click” should happen. If you push on the trigger a few times, it should start spraying again. If you don’t leave your can with the trigger in the correct “off position”, the gas will seep out, rendering the can unusable. When done using the can, make sure the trigger is fully pushed forward and in the off position. Even pulling lightly on the nozzle will allow the gas to seep out. Paint may build up in the nozzle after it is used. If this happens, pick off any excess dried paint from the nozzle opening, then flip the can upside down and spray to clear the passage. The force of the spray should clear the way. We also suggest storing your used paints upside-down in water if you will not be using them right away (with trigger in off position).
Will Simply Spray paints work on wood?Marianne RitterYes, Simply Spray Soft Fabric Paint, Upholstery Fabric Paint and Stencil Spray will work on wood. Simply Spray paints will stain wood. Apply a few coats for darker coverage. Stencil Spray will not absorb into the wood, which will allow you to stencil your favorite design on the surface.
Are Simply Spray products safe for children?Marianne RitterYES! All Simply Spray products are safe for everyone. They are non-toxic and non-flammable. Simply Spray products are aerosol but do not contain ANY harsh ingredients or inhalants.
