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.

Use an alcohol wipe let sit short while residue should rub off completely smell of alcohol will disapate while drying

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.
