I hope someone knows the answer to this. I need to remove 1970's flocked wallpaper from cabinet wood door panels and this stuff is on there like cement! I don't think wallpaper remover is going to work.

This site is for woodworking, but glue is glue, right? It suggests heat and/or steam, so my suggestion is to try using your iron on the felt, using the hottest steam setting. Good luck!

If all else fails, you might try a bit of Goo-Gone - test in an in conspicuous corner.
