I took off some things I had appliqued to a shirt using Wonder Under. The appliques were old so they just peeled right off. Now, I am having trouble removing what's left of the Wonder Under that is on the shirt. I have tried Goo Gone, but that did not work. Any suggestions?

Set the shirt spot-down on a clean waste cloth (cotton preferably), and iron a little longer than you did to apply the appliques in the first place. Don't overdo it, but get the area nice and hot. Repeat if necessary until the waste cloth has absorbed the excess adhesive.
To prevent lifting in future, be sure to use the minimum time recommended, let cool, and re-iron the spots necessary. Over-ironing weakens the adhesive and makes it run, which is the principle behind removing the adhesive spots. (11/21/2006)
