How to remove iron-on patches from clothes?

The iron-on patch is designed to adhere firmly to the fabric. Therefore, it can be a bit challenging to remove them, but with a little patience, it can be done.

To remove iron-on patches, you will need to use an iron again, preferably with a steam function. Alternatively, you can use a garment steamer. Set the iron to a steam setting. Hold the iron over the patch, allowing the steam to penetrate the patch you want to remove. Try to avoid the iron touching the patch directly, as this may cause the patch to melt onto the iron.

The steam will gradually loosen the adhesive of the patch from the fabric. You can gently help the process by loosening the patch with your fingers. However, be careful not to burn yourself and avoid tearing the patch unnecessarily, as it may leave residue on the garment.

If steaming doesn’t work, you can also try ironing a new patch on top of the patch you want to remove.
