Laundry Tip #1-
At Christmas this past year, my son received a pair of Khaki pants that we found at a really good price of $20. So good and practical since he wears khaki everyday. So we bought him a couple more. However, the first pair, laden with sticker tags all down the leg of the pants, were unwearable (is that a word?) due to the fact that the stickum (my made up word) from those stickers remained adhered to the pants.
So, after one failed attempt to remove it, last night I decided to try again. Google is such a wonderful tool….I just typed in….”How to remove stickers from fabric”. Guess what? A list of 6 different ways. Wow! So I went with the following:
Steam the sticker then use a knife or small brush like a toothbrush to remove.
I used my iron to steam the sticker because it has a steam button on it. You could use a tea kettle also. I tried the knife but found that the toothbrush worked best on this particular sticker to scrape the gooey gum from the pants.
Worked like a charm! Apparently, I rock too! Or as I say with my kiddos at school…..Give yourself a pep talk-“I did it, I did it, I really, really did it!” (They say this while looking down their shirt. OK. I know what you are thinking…but they are preschoolers)
Give it a try and let me know how it works for you. Would love to hear from you!
