Method 2: Using Hot Air and Steam to remove an iron on transfer paper printed on the shirt
1. Lay the garment on a flat surface. An ironing board or a table top with a towel will do, but the surface must be heat-resistant.
2. Tuck a towel into your clothes. Keep a small towel or rag under your clothes to prevent damage to the other side of your clothes. If the towel is too soft to handle on a hard surface, use a piece of cardboard or very thin plywood instead.
3. Check the care instructions on the clothing label. Heating above the recommended temperature may damage the fabric. Too high temperature can melt some fabrics, such as polyester.
4. Heat the pattern with a hair dryer. Set the hair dryer to the highest setting and hold it very close to the pattern or lettering, which may heat the glue to the point where it tends to stretch and peel.
5. Heat the pattern with steam. You can also heat the transferred pattern with steam. Cover the pattern with a damp towel and place a very hot iron on it. The steam heats the glue until it spreads and falls off easily.
6. Use a sharp knife to peel off the pattern. After loosening the pattern with hot air, pry it up by scraping along the edges of the pattern with a sharp knife. As long as a part is successfully pryed, the entire pattern can be easily torn off.
7. Continue to heat and remove the pattern. Heat only a small portion at a time to keep it very hot, and then scrap it off bit by bit.
8. Be patient. This method can be time consuming. Play your favorite music and challenge yourself to keep going until all the patterns are cleared.
9. Remove any remaining glue. After removing the transferred pattern, adhesive may remain on the garment. Remove with rubbing alcohol or a glue remover like Goo Gone. Before using any chemicals on the fabric, be sure to find an inconspicuous location to test the effect.
10. Wash your clothes as usual. After removing the transferred pattern and residual glue, wash the garment as you normally would. If you have used chemicals to remove the residual adhesive, you should wash it off to avoid chemical irritate or damage your skin.
