Removal Questions
Q: How can I remove the adhesive residue left on the fabric? Prev        Next
A: To remove any adhesive left on the fabric, spray the household solvent called Goo Gone®, or the original version of Goof Off®, (Not Goof Off 2) onto the backside of the fabric in the badge area. Make sure to thoroughly soak the area with the solvent. Wait for 3-4 minutes and wipe the residue off the garment with a paper towel from the front side. Then re-apply the solvent from the front side and blot the excess into a paper towel held onto the back side. It helps to use an old toothbrush to scrub the stained area as the solvent soaks through into the paper towel. Repeat this several times until you do not see any more adhesive. If any residual adhesive is still visible, repeat the soaking and blotting process. In stubborn cases, use of a stronger solvent such as the original version of Goof Off®, (not Goof Off 2)may be required. There may be a faint ring left on the fabric after the solvent has dried. This will come out in a normal wash cycle. You can either wash and dry the garment and then apply a new badge over the area or just wait for the solvent to completely evaporate and then apply the new badge. If badges have been ironed please note that ironing melts the Badge Magic adhesive and the iron can push it into and even through the weave of the fabric, making it harder to remove. Therefore, it may take extra soakings to completely dissolve the glue. Dry cleaning at a cleaner that uses the perchloroethylene cleaning solvent will also remove the residue from the fabric.
