Place the stained article of clothing in the freezer. Keep the clothing in the freezer for several hours. Immediately after removing it, chip away at the hot glue with a dull butter knife, taking care not to scrape your fingers with it. Continue scraping until the glue is gone.

Place a cotton rag on top of the stained area. Heat up an iron with no steam, then press the iron over the stained area and the cotton fabric for 20 seconds. Gently peel up the rag as some of the glue comes with it. Using a clean area of the rag, repeat the process. Continue to iron and remove the fabric until all of the glue has transferred to the cotton rag.

Saturate a cotton ball with nail polish remover that contains acetone. Gently rub the cotton ball against the stained area, then blot the area with a clean cotton cloth. Continue until there is no more glue on the clothing, and it has transferred completely onto the cotton cloth.

Dab the area with a liquid adhesive remover. Liquid adhesive removers are available at your local drugstore or grocery store. Saturate a cotton ball with the adhesive remover, then gently dab the area until the glue has dissolved completely.
