    Question Ultra Heat And Bond-UH Oh-How Do You remove it?

    I'm finishing up 2016 Row By Row, lot's of applique. I didn't realize what I had was Ultra Heat and Bond and made one row using it. I started this row, and noticed my machine didn't do the stitches well,but completed one house. It's a row of dog houses. I've already fused the Ultra Heat and Bond to the pieces in the kit.

    1.) Do I need to tell my quilter I used it? it's 2 small areas, I stopped after I realized I had Ultra No Sew Heat and Bond.
    2.) How do you remove the Ultra Heat And Bond after it's fused? I now have Wonder Under and would like to use the material from the kit. I will never use Heat and Bond again.if I can't remove it,I'll just get some fat quarters in similar prints.

    I don't use the stuff but you got me curious. You should tell your quilter because it could damage the machine.

    Here's the link where I found that info: https://www.jandofabrics.com/blog/he...ps-and-tricks/

    Here are that website's tips. Ignoring some or all of these may help get rid of the bonding agent.

    Pre-wash all clothing and fabrics before using Heat N’ Bond Iron-On Adhesive. Do not use fabric softeners.
    Don’t overheat Heat N’ Bond; this will cause an insufficient bonding.
    Don’t iron over the plastic instruction sheet.
    Don’t sew- due to the unique thickness of Heat N’ Bond’s adhesive machine stitching is not recommended. Also, adhesive has a tendency to stick to needle, causing damage to machine.
    It is machine washable. For best results use the delicate cycle and warm water.
    Heat N’ Bond is not recommended for projects or items that require dry cleaning.

    Another "how to remove heat and bond" google search gave me:

    I've had some success by using a slightly larger piece of scrap cotton fabric, fusing it to the remaining adhesive, and then letting it cool completely. (When impatient, I pop it into the freezer.) Then I briefly iron the back side of the main fabric and peel off the cooler scrap fabric, which usually pulls off at least some of the adhesive with it. I've also used a blowdryer on hot setting to warm the adhesive without pressing on it, so that I can scrape it away with an old credit card. I keep repeating this process; it's not fun, but it eventually works. Let us know what happens! http://forums.threadsmagazine.com/ga...nd-heat-n-bond



    And when in doubt, our own board search yielded this thread: https://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f...d-t225102.html

    good luck!

    I threw it away. I now have Wonder Under. I'll try the freezer idea. That might help. I googled everywhere trying to find something.

    My friend recently made the same mistake, we tried everything to remove it with no luck. She tried to sew through it and he needle just kept gumming up. Her machine would sew a few inches and the bobbin thread would bunch up on the back. The front of the bag says No Sew, I guess there's a reason for that.
