Hi everyone, im currently working on a project that uses hot glue and it sorta got messy on some areas. How can i remove the hot glue safely without affecting fabric? Thanks!

wait untill it's cooled completely & peel it off. If the fabric is too pourous/ thin/ fragile it might tear- test on a scrap first.

I've heard that if you put the whole thing in the freezer for awhile, or rub the hot glue with an ice cube, (or walk outside in a Montana winter!), then flex the area with the glob of glue, it will 'pop' off.  But, I haven't tried it.

I have tried using a blow dryer to eliminate all the spider-webby strings that are left over.  That works really great!
