I’m going to share a little trick I learned on how to remove sticker residue from clothing after washing…
This year at preschool, my daughter has been an all-star (lol, what kid in preschool isn’t an all-star?!) and you know what that means? She gets lots and lots of sticker rewards that go all over her shirts. Yay for a great job….nay for when I forget to take them off and they end up going through the washer/dryer!
And if you’re the one who does the laundry in your house…you’ll know what kind of frustration that little leftover goo causes! Ugh!
I was bound and determined to find a solution…I wasn’t going to let that almost brand new shirt sit ruined with a sticky mess on it. I Googled and Googled…and all I could find were ways to remove sticker goo that had sooo many steps to it and so many products that I thought I’d ruin the fabric even more. Then out of the blue one of my girlfriends gave me a suggestion that I’m going to share with you!
What you need to remove leftover sticky goo from stickers after washing/drying:
*The article of clothing (make sure to read the directions on how to care for the fabric…if it’s not meant to be ironed, you can’t use this method)
Here’s how you get the goo off:
Take the shirt (or other article of clothing), lay it on an ironing board and cover the sticker residue area/area of the shirt that the iron will be touching with two layers of paper towels. Set your iron on high (no steam) and set it on the area just long enough to heat the goo up (5-10 seconds).
