I found this for you: Wonder Under is an heat-sensitive adhesive and if you followed the directions it will make a permanent bond. It is possible to remove the applique but there's no guarantee you will remove all the glue. If you want to try it here's what to do:

Heat the applique back up with an iron (to re-melt the glue) and be sure to remove it while hot. This might leave a white adhesive residue when cool. If this happens try the following: Take a piece of clean cotton and place the pocket face down on it. Press a hot iron on the pocket, pressing for a bit longer than you did to adhere the applique. Peel it away from the cotton. Move the cotton over to a clean spot. Repeat until the glue has been absorbed into the cotton. (You can do this with wax too). Hope this helps you.

How do you get gummy residue from iron on appliqués out of fabric? The appliqués have been removed. The fabric is nylon and other synthetic fabrics that will be destroyed if I use the iron and paper towel method. Is there a product or technique I can use?
