Hairspray or vinegar also work very well!

A solvent that you can get at Home Depot: Goof Off. It removed all the adhesive left on a couple of hockey jerseys that I took the name bars off of in seconds.

I just voted and placed the I VOTED sticker on the lapel of my new polyester jacket only to find out it left a adhesive stain when I peeled it off later. My girlfriend suggested placing scotch tape across the area and pressing down with your finger then quickly ripping it off. Worked like a charm!

OMG, Thank you. This worked like a charm. I used masking tape instead of scotch tape (which was all I had on hand) :)

The clear scotch tape worded after repeating placing the tape on firmly and then ripping off about 4 to 5 times. Awesome thank you.

Use duct tape to take off the sticky stuff and then wash it to remove the residue.

Rub some cornstarch baby powder on it. Then brush off with a clothes brush, wash in warm water. Do not dryer dry unless you see it is off. If not, take a wet washcloth and rub it like you would a stain. Do not use any applications that would have an oil base to it. This will enhance the stain after the glue is off.

I had this problem too. I ended up soaking my shirt for a long time to try and loosen the sticky stuff and ended up having to pick it of piece by piece. Annoying, but my shirt still looks fine and it didn't cost me anything but time.

We used Shout stain removal on a white baseball jersey. Which had a white sticker that you would put a write a number on. The area was soaked with it over an hour then scrubbed with a medium brush in warm water. Then washed it came off pretty easy.

Goo Gone worked quickly. Spray on rub and it dries the glue and peel off immediately.

My daughter has splatters of spray adhesive on her polyester parka. I have tried going over it with an iron with a cloth on top with little success. How can I remove the adhesive stains?

Did you try Goo Gone? I'd read the instructions first, but it's a great adhesive remover.

Also, the original Dawn dishwashing liquid is a great grease dissolver.

Recently I found that Caress bath soap bar and bath gel remove my adhesive medical sticker residue from my skin. I used to use nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol, but this is much nicer.

I hope one of these work for you and good luck. (08/20/2010)

I used Stitchwichery on the wrong side of a pair of sweatpants. I did read the question regarding removal from polyester, but now I am desperate for help removing the glue from my son-in-laws very expensive sweats. I haven't told him yet what I did. Help. I have tried a hot iron and terry cloth towel method, Goo Gone, and stain remover. Nothing helps. Thanks.

I didn't have Goo Be Gone, but it reminded me of "hand soap". A product I picked up at the 99 cent store. They don't sell it there any more, but I've seen it at hardware stores, and I bet automotive stores would have it too! It comes in a little tub, looks like a 16oz sour cream container. It contains pumice and says it removes grease, grime, dirt, ink, odors, paint, and much more. I used it on some clothes adhesive and it took it right off, I also use it for cleaning the fridge, especially the handles, and everything else that is hard to clean. Amazing how easy it works, hardly any elbow grease needed at all. I'm starting to think this is the only product one needs around the house. (07/21/2010)

I have removed a patch from a shirt, but the glue won't come off. I tried using an iron with no success. Any ideas?

Have you tried Goo Gone? It will usually remove any sticky substance. (02/11/2010)

I tried to use iron-on letters on a shirt. The letters did not stick, but the adhesive did. Any suggestions on removing the adhesive?
