Supplies Needed for Heat Transfer Vinyl Removal

  1. Iron
  2. Tweezers
  3. Goo Gone

Steps to removing Heat Transfer Vinyl

  1. Take your garment and lay it on an ironing board, and then place your iron on top.
  2. Allow it to get hot to really seal the design onto your piece of clothing.
  3. Once done, slowly begin to pick at the vinyl to help loosen and get it to remove.
  4. The tweezers work great at helping to lift off the HTV.

If you find you have residue left on the garment, grab your Goo Gone and use that to work at removing any of the mess. I created a video that will show you the proper steps!

If you do not have Goo Gone you can try other solvents like rubbing alcohol or even nail polish remover. With any item, I always say test to ensure your garment will not react to the solvent by discoloring or something worse. For me personally, I prefer Goo Gone over other brands of items.

The tweezers and Goo Gone really help make the process of applying and removing the HTV a lot easier than I imagined. Don’t let your fears hold you back from being creative.

That is all it takes to apply and fully finish your Heat Transfer Vinyl projects! Not much too it when you think about it. So get creative and get to work on some epic designs.

I’m afraid of burning my item. Doing names on stuffed items so can’t take as much heat.
