One of the most effective ways of getting glue off fabric is with acetone. However, this needs to be done with caution as acetone can damage fabric. We recommend you use Super Nail Pure Acetone Polish Remover for its purity. Super Nail Pure Acetone Polish Remover is 100% pure acetone, so it will do better than most other nail polish removers you may have in your house. To remove fabric from glue with Super Nail Pure Acetone Polish Remover, you need to dip the tip of a cotton swab into the acetone and then gently rub it on the glue without getting too much on the fabric. When done, wipe away any excess acetone and run the fabric through the wash.
