Hey guys this is a weird question, but I'm not a member of any Arts and Crafts forums so I'd figure I would ask it here before I go through a whole regristration process for one question.

Anyway, my question relates to a hat that I have. I didn't like the iron on patch on the front of it, so I ripped it off. The problem is that there is a bunch of the iron-on-patch glue left and it looks bad. Do any of you guys know of a way to get this stuff off?

Thanks a ton
Eric

Might get more responses by stating the fabric. "Goo gone" or "Goo be gone" (something like that) works pretty good getting glue out of carpet and I believe works on cotton/polyester fabric. Good luck.

The Goo Gone though might work, try a really small amount of it to make sure it doesn't detroy the fabric first..

I've had glue on some clothes before, don't think it ever came out that well if at all.
