Remove adhesive from clothes by scraping off the large pieces, setting a wet absorbent pad on the area and washing the garments. This takes only a few minutes plus time for a washing cycle. You need absorbent pads, a scraping tool, Afta Cleaning Fluid, laundry detergent and a washing machine.
- Scrape off the big pieces
Remove the big, gummy adhesive pieces by scraping them off of the clothing with a scraping tool or your fingernails. Scrape off as much as possible.
- Prepare the absorbent pad
Purchase some Afta Cleaning Fluid. Soak an absorbent cleaning pad with solution.
- Sponge the area with the solution
Work the Afta Cleaning Fluid into the sticky area with a sponge or cloth.
- Apply the absorbent pad to the sticky spot
Place the prepared absorbent pad over the spot with the adhesive on it.
- Allow the spot to soak
Leave the pad in place, allowing the spot to soak for several minutes, until the fluid has dried and evaporated completely.
- Wash the garment
Place the garment in a washing machine. Launder it as usual to remove the cleaning fluid.
- Check on the spot
Once the item is clean, check the spot for any remaining traces of adhesive.
