◎ Be sure to wear work gloves and gloves as it gets very hot when ironing
◎ If the temperature of the iron is too high, the PET bottle may melt. Please be sure to sandwich the cooking sheet between them.
◎ Plastic bottles shrink and become harder when heated (please be sure to cool them before touching or processing them)
◎ You can also use it as earrings by changing the metal fittings.
