A few days ago I bought some new fabric and when I received the patterns, they had little stickers on them to mark the name of the patterns and yardage. I thought I had removed all of the stickers before throwing them in the washer since I know you can easily ruin fabric or clothing after washing/drying it with a sticker still left on. And I was WRONG. One pesky sticker still made its way through the washer and dryer and much to my dismay, one panel of brand new fabric had a yellowed sticky mess on it. Grrrr!
I was bound and determined to find a solution…I wasn’t going to let the brand new fabric sit ruined with a sticky mess on it. I Googled and Googled…and all I could find were ways to remove sticker goo that had sooo many steps to it and so many products that I thought I’d ruin the fabric even more. Then out of the blue one of my girlfriends gave me a suggestion I’m going to share with you all!
What you need to remove leftover sticky goo from stickers after washing/drying:
*The fabric or garment (make sure to read the directions on how to care for the fabric…if it’s not meant to be ironed, you can’t use this method)
*My friend said the sticky actually came off on to the paper towel when she did this…but I actually had to pick at it to get it off. Once the goo is hot, it peels off easily!*
