    I found several fat quarters in my stash that still had the price stickers on them. When I removed the stickers, it left a sticky residue on the fabric. Any ideas how to remove it? Will just washing the FQ remove it? :oops:

    I think I used goo gone to remove it from some of mine.
    I had to wash them after getting it off tho.

    When I 1st started quilting I bought FQ's at Joanns like crazy. Had the same problem. After you're done it all washes out. Just annoying til then.

    Goo-gone is a bit oily, so be careful with it! I think it is mainly meant for glass and plastics. It might stain your fabric and make a worse problem. I would just try soaking the pieces and scraping with my fingernail or a soft brush.
