Red face Stupid Mistake

I made a stupid mistake and don't know if I can fix it. I have a Square-n-Blocker that I use for an ironing pad. I forgot to lay my sheet down and now have glue on it and have no idea if I can get it out. Any suggestions? And thanks to whomever suggested a dryer sheet to clean the iron,that worked like a charm!

I don't have any ideas for how to get the glue off -

but very few of us make "smart mistakes"

I wonder if putting paper, like from an old-style grocery sack, on it & ironing would help lift the glue. It could be worth a try. I also got some heat/bond on my ironing pad & put aluminum foil down then ironed that. It lifted some of the heat/bond, but not all.

I agree with the brown paper bag down and ironing over it. I also agree with "bearisgray" that no one ever makes a "smart" mistake. Mistakes happen and don't feel bad-we have all been there. Good luck

There is a product that hospitals use that is called adhesive remover. I have never tried it, but it might work.

Thanks for the ideas. I will try them all. Maybe a paper bag will work, I never thought of that.

Goo Gone? It works for lots of sticky, gooey things.

I was going to suggest Goo Gone also. I have used is successfully in several situations.

Goo Gone was my first thought, but if you don't have it, try vinegar. It seems to be magic elixir for everything . LOL
