Let's get started:

Step 1: Put the garment/fabric flat on the ironing board or any other flat place, turn on the Iron, and set it to a temperature higher than we ironed it on the fabric before.

Step 2: Cover the label completely with parchment/baking paper, press the preheated Iron firmly against the label, and iron it back and forth for 15-20 seconds.

Step 3: Hold the corner of the label with tweezers and slowly peel off the label when it is warm. If the tag is still firm, heat the label for 5 seconds until entirely off.

Final cleanup

After removing the iron-on label from the garment/fabric, you will notice some adhesive residue on the textile.

Frankly to say, we have tried many ways to wash the marks after removing the label, but these residues cannot be cleaned perfectly. So if a new label is replaced in the same position, the new tag must be larger than the original one to cover the residue.

We do not recommend changing the label multiple times in the same position, as glue residue will make the space harder and unsuitable for the skin.
