HOW TO REMOVE STICKER RESIDUE FROM CLOTHING THAT HAS BEEN WASHED AND/OR DRIED
Then, rub the sticker with the rag or cotton ball. You don’t have to scrub, just make sure the entire sticker is soaked.
After sufficiently wetting the sticker area, peel it off!
It should come right off, but if it doesn’t, rub more rubbing alcohol on it.
Rub the area a bit more to remove all sticker residue. (For super-stubborn residue, you may have to gently pick a bit.)
Finally, rewash the clothing item.
That’s it! I couldn’t believe the first time I tried it how easily the sticker came off. No soaking, scrubbing, or picking required!
