Dip a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol, then saturate the area with the liquid. Let the area sit for several minutes, then peel up the sticker residue. Good luck.

Poured alcohol directly on polyester golf shirt that had been washed and dryed with name tag on it . As soon as i did i rubbed it and it immediately rolled right off with no residue.

Will you please tell me does the rubbing alcohol discolor the fabric? Will wait your reply before trying. Thank you

Dear KFFRMW88,
Thank you so very much. Decided to go ahead and try it on the bottom of fabric where the paper was glued on . Lo and behold it worked! The fabric is fine. I assumed that if it stained that area of the fabric I wouldn't loose anything. If it didn't work I would have to cut that area of fabric off any way. You are a absolute jewel!


With appreciation,
jean b.
