Hot - gluegun goo removal?

xminionOctober 1, 2008


Okay, so I'm a spaz. I used the hot glue gun to adhere black ric ric onto black fabric. Now there is unsightly white-colored glue goo on my craft.

Does acetone get the glue residue off without harming the fabric? Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

Try getting another piece of fabric and put som hot glue on it to make sure any of the "cures" doesn't ruin the fabric. I would try a heat gun to heat up the glue so it can be scraped off - don't know if it'll work, but try it on your scrap fabric first to make sure it works... I know I use a hair dryto get rid of the whispies...
