The directions do not say use steam, but I always do, and most people I know do as well. But, like the directions say TEST on a scrap first. Iron settings are often not reliable. Also, you can re-iron the Tender Touch down if it lifts. But I would use steam when you do that. Once I started using steam, it never lifted for me again.
AND...I figured out that when cutting the stabilizer for a knit especially, it’s best to cut with a pinking shears or a wavy blade rotary cutter. Because of the nature of knits, which stretch all the time, I found that this really helped. I would press for about 10 seconds and then steam for a few seconds and then dry for a couple of seconds. Iron temperatures vary all over the place. Tender Touch is 100% polyester, so it can take more heat than nylon. If you are not comfortable about your iron temperature on polyester, place a muslin pressing cloth over the Tender Touch which will allow you to use a little more heat and more steam.
