    Question Help please - how can I get rid of fusible glue?

    I've managed to iron some glue onto my Cut n' Press ironing board which I can't get off. I've tried ironing on top with fabric hoping to 'soak up' the glue and rubbing with neat soap and a very hot cloth - no luck.


    Hope someone can help - it's really annoying! Name:  IMG_0152.JPG

    Not sure it will help at all but I got that stuff on my iron-- to get it off I ironed over newspaper with iron as hot as it could get and this worked. Because yours is on mat I'm not sure of results will be. Same but worth a try. Hope you can get it off I understand the annoyance

    I use a product called Goo Gone. Its great. I get it at Walmart. I do alot of fusible applique, and it keeps my iron spotless.
