Here are my personal tips on removing iron ons.

-Dissolve the transfer adhesive using rubbing alcohol.

-Iron the clothing under a piece of parchment paper.

-Wet the transfer and then iron it off.

-Peel the transfer away with your fingernails.

-Wash the clothing to remove any remaining bits of glue.

Other tips:

-A Teflon-coated iron works best for the parchment paper method.

-Use Goo Gone if the iron-on does not come off.

-Combine several of the methods above if desired.

How can you remove an iron-on that has been applied already?

Removing an Iron-On

You can remove it by warming it up again with the hot iron. Quickly peel it off before it cools. The glue is nearly the same as hot glue, but higher temp so it will survive the dryer. The trouble is that half the glue will stay on the fabric and the only way to solve this without scissors is to apply new iron-ons. God bless. (12/03/2008)
