Turn the dial on the iron to medium heat. Anything hotter may scorch the fabric. Cooler temperatures are unable to release the glue holding the letters in place.
Check the manufacturer's tag for care instructions. Some fabrics may not tolerate the heat of an iron. This method is not appropriate for fabrics that easily burn. Test the iron's heat by lightly pressing an inside seam.
Arrange a sheet of wax paper over the letters. Make sure to cover the entire surface of the letters with the wax paper since this will affect the final result.
Press the iron down on the wax paper, holding for 5 to 10 seconds.
Gently raise a corner of the wax paper, slowly peeling it and the vinyl letters off the fabric. Repeat this process if any of the lettering remains.
