Removing a Stain From a Jersey?

Notice the yellow stain on the jersey at 3 o'clock. There is not actual glue, just its color. How do I get the yellow fly-paper glue stain off the number on my jersey?

You can try a paste of hydrogen peroxide--whatever strength you have--and baking soda (pour peroxide into the baking soda and stir until it becomes the consistency of cake icing). Put a thick towel between the layers so the stain doesn't bleed through to the other side and with your fingers or a spoon or a toothbrush gently message the icing like mix into the stain and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse in cold and repeat until the stain comes out.

"Put a thick towel between the layers". Can you elaborate on this part? I didn't get it. You mean put a thick towel under (the other side) of the stain?

Sorry for not being clear. You don't want the liquid from the stain to leak through to the other side. By putting a thick towel inside the shirt so the front does not touch the back, the towel will absorb the liquid and any potential stain release. Be sure it is a towel you don't care if it gets stained! I always do this with stain removal so as not to have the stain bleed from the front to the back when it is being released! Hope this helps!

You could use a little acetone removal , also stain removal detergent , like Oxyclean , Zout, are good ones - There is also a link to cleaning different glues- www.thespruce.com/remove-glue-from-clothes-2146914...

The problem is not the adhesive part of the glue but the color of it.

I would use a stain stick. If you already put in the dryer, the stain may be permanent.

Hopefully, this jersey has not been in the dryer but if it has, it may just take more than one cleaning to completely remove the stain.

Not everybody does this but you should lay your jersey out flat on something that water will not harm such as a kitchen counter top or the top of your washing machine or dryer.
Then take a towel and and open the bottom of your jersey and slip the towel inside the jersey so there is only one layer of material on top of the towel. This towel will absorb some of the liquid that you will be using on your stain as it goes through the top layer of your jersey as this material is not usually very thick.

I like PGHgirl's formula but I like to add a little blue Dawn to mine
50% Baking Soda - 25% Hydrogen Peroxide - 25% blue Dawn Dish Soap
Mix these together in a small bowl until well combined.
Using a wash cloth or a soft toothbrush, scrub the stained area with the mixture. Use as much mixture as needed but try to stay within the white area.
Depending on the severity of the stain, scrub anywhere from 1-5 minutes (not real hard or fast - medium gently). Once all areas of the stains are scrubbed, leave the jersey set for for 1-2 hours, or until the mixture has completely dried onto the jersey.
Rinse the jersey in a sink several times until there are no more suds.
You can now hang the jersey up and allow it to dry or you can launder it. Be sure to look at the stain when the jersey has air dried as the stain will not show up as much while the jersey is wet.
You may have to go through this a couple of times, especially if the jersey has been dried in a hot dryer.
Be sure the stain is gone before you place it in the dryer.
