How to remove the label on your fabric

Your fabric may have the manufacturers sticker on the fabric. These stickers are easily removed using the following method.

You will need an iron and ironing board :

Make sure the part of the fabric with the stickers attached is FACE DOWN on (touching) the ironing board.

DO NOT IRON DIRECTLY ONTO THE STICKERS. Use another part of the fabric (or another piece of fabric or pressing cloth) so that it forms a layer between the piece of fabric which has the stickers attached and your iron.

Bottom to top:

1. Ironing board,

2. Part of fabric with stickers attached

3. Another part of the fabric (or a pressing cloth or a different piece of fabric preferably a light coloured cotton),

4. Your iron. Use your iron (medium heat setting) to press directly over the area where the stickers are.

What will be happening is that the glue used to attach the stickers will slowly begin to melt/soften and, as it melts, it makes it very easy to remove the stickers.

Make sure iron not too hot, press area for 20 seconds initially and try removing the stickers gently. If they don’t come away easily, then try for 15 seconds, test stickers again, try 10 seconds etc., Once glue warmed sufficiently, stickers can be easily removed by peeling them away. If the sticker tears and/or any piece of the stickers do not come away cleanly, then they probably needed a little more heat from the iron.
