Step 3 - Place the iron on applique patch anywhere you want and iron straight over it. Keep the iron moving over the area until it's stuck using the appropriate heat setting for your garment. I used my iron set to half way on it's heat dial and it was done in about 30 seconds.

      I would say that it depends if it is the type of garment you wish to wash after applying the patch. For example, if it is a coat that will be dry-cleaned, I would apply the patch without washing. However if it is a garment that will be machine washed such as a top or trousers, then I would wash it first because some fabrics are prone to small amounts of shrinkage on the first wash which has a small chance of causing issues with the patch such as puckering of or patch lifting around the edge of the patch.
