How to Remove an Iron On Label

Wunderlabel iron on labels are made to stick, although they can be removed when needed.  By heating the label and the adhesive to a high temperature, the label will peel off slowing while still heated.  Please use caution when removing the labels as the area is very hot.  It is best to use a pair of tweezers to handle the label.  You can view our iron on label application instructions here.

Place the garment flat on an ironing board with the label you wish to remove easily accessible and cover the label with a sheet of parchment paper.

If you are not able to easily lift the label, place the parchment paper over the label and heat with the iron for another 5 seconds.  Continue to heat in 5 second intervals until the label is able to be lifted.

Please keep in mind that the iron on label will leave adhesive residue on the garment.  The adhesive may be removed by using an adhesive remover which is safe for fabrics.
