  4. Hi, I have a tshirt with what seems to be a digital print on it – the printed logo feels like plastic. I guess it might be vinyl. I would really like to remove the print. The tshirt is 100% cotton. I was wondering if the solvent you used in the video might work on a cotton tshirt and does that solvent usually leaves spots and/or smells on clothes? What is the best way to wash the clothe after? Thank you in advance for the info 😊
