Default How to Remove Fabric Glued to Fabric?

Hi all,

I'm currently trying to make the main frame for my hair piece for my wedding from two different store-bought headbands. However, there are two pieces on one of the headbands that I don't want: a flower glued onto one and the actual stretchy band part. Is there a way to soften the glue and pull those pieces off without damaging the fabric?

Thanks,
Kassie

It would depend on the type of glue that was used. If it is a water based glue, then you can try soaking it - the glue would absorb the water and soften. If that doesn't work, it probably isn't a water based glue. You could try an acetone based product - such as nail polish remover. Use a q-tip to dab a bit on the glue, let it sit for a bit, then try rubbing it off with an old toothbrush.

How long should it soak before I can tell if it'll come off or not?
