Removing Fly Paper Adhesive From Fabric

Help! I dropped a Sticky Fly Paper Pest Strip onto my suede pillow and pants. I was able to pull it off, but now I am left with this sticky goo on both items. Can anyone please tell me how to get this goo off of my things! Thanks.

Freeze them...then pick it off...any cleaner that would remove the glue would probably ruin the fabrics. Anything hot makes the glue just get gooeier....

We had an African Violet that got black gnats in it. We hung a fly strip on the sheers behind the plant. We caught a lot of gnats, but the goo from the fly strip got on the sheers. I washed them 3 times trying different products to get the goo off and nothing worked. I had a product called Goo Gone and I squirted it on the two sheer panels. I immediately dissolved the goo. This could stain your pillow so you might try lighter fluid.
