By decal, you mean a patch or logo on the article? If so, you cannot really remove it without it showing. The best thing to do is to buy another one to go over it or make your own. You can buy fabric that meshes to fabrics together with an iron so that would be how you make your own.

I recently bought some shirts at a yard sale that had glued on decals. How can I get them off? I tried nail polish remover, but it didn't work.

If the decals are the iron-on type, you can try ironing them one at a time. While the glue is warm, the decals should peel off. (10/05/2008)

Wouldn't you be left with a gummy unattractive look to your shirt even if you were able to remove the decal? You could sew on a fabric applique over the decal if it's the decal itself you do not like. (10/05/2008)

Perhaps you could put another iron-on that you do like, over it. (10/05/2008)

They say that "Goop" which mechanics use to wash their hands, works well for this. (10/05/2008)

Maybe some "Goo Gone". It's used for taking of labels and such. It's very good. (10/06/2008)

How does one remove an ironed on decal from a cotton/polyester hoodie? Anyone with any ideas? Thanks much.

Keep in mind that if the fabric has faded at all, it will not have faded underneath the decal and the outline will remain. If you still want to remove them, put an old white cloth over the decal and iron the heck out of it. The decal should stick to the cloth. (01/23/2010)

Apply fabric softener directly to the "iron- on". Allow it to soften the adhesive, then cover with a towel and iron on "hot" till the iron-ons are loosened. However, the "shadows" will not go away. (09/07/2010)
