I bought my husband a dress shirt at Goodwill. It's in perfect shape, but I discovered there is a strange iron on label inside the collar. It's like paper, but it's tough.
I have tried Goo Gone and fabric softener. I have tried heating with the iron. I have tried plain water. I even tried digging it off with a flat screwdriver, but it isn't even fazed. I am at a loss as to how to get it out. Does anyone have any ideas of what would work? Thank you.

Easy Instructions. Things You'll Need:
Cloth or parchment paper
Step 1) Place the garment with the iron-on label on an ironing board, with the label facing up. Turn your iron on to the highest setting.
Step 2) Place either a thin piece of cloth or parchment paper over the label.
Step 3) Apply heat to the cloth or parchment paper over the iron-on label for 10 to 15 seconds.
Step 4) Carefully remove the cloth or parchment paper and immediately pull the corner of the label. The label will be hot; consider using a knife to slowly peel back the label.
Step 5) As the label cools, stop peeling and repeat. You may need to steam it off with a damp cloth.
I see that you said you tried an iron, if you try the method "kffrmw88 " suggested and it doesn't work, you may have to put a softer label over the top. Perhaps a dry cleaner would have a suggestion also.
I have tried every suggestion listed here (e.g., hot iron, Goo Gone), in addition to paint thinner and even gasoline. Nothing has removed this damn iron-on patch. I even stopped by my local cleaners to see if they had an idea or industrial-strength adhesive remover I could buy. Nope. Does any1 have any other suggestions?
