  • alcohol often dissolves the gluish bond, but be careful as it may also discolor your garmet. hairspray also does the same. you can try dawn dishwashing liquid, it also dissolves things. take a test first, you dont want to ruin you garmet. Also try re-heating it with the iron, while its hot try to pull of the stickies. dont burn yourself, as you may have to get it pretty hot to do this...just a few ideas. tape might help pull of the stickies too! I dont know really...just guessing at ideas. Good luck.
