Sticky situation

November 17, 2013 - Jodelle Greiner
You know those stickers they put on some clothes lately? Well, I wish they wouldn’t use super glue to get them to stay put.

I took a new article of clothing out a couple of days ago and noticed it had one of those stickers on it. I tried everything to pull the &^%$ thing off, but I couldn’t get it to let go of the fabric. I’ve got pretty long nails and I picked at it, I tried bending the fabric near the edge of the sticker, tried working my way around it — nothing.

I finally got an edge peeled up and started to pull it back — it ripped. I tried pulling from another spot — it ripped again. This time, it separated, leaving a thin film of paper over the stupid adhesive still stuck to the fabric.

With nothing to grab hold of, I knew I couldn’t get what was left of that sticker off the fabric, so I just put it on and wore it that way.

Why can’t they just use a simple adhesive that can be pulled off easily? Or if they must use the super sticky stuff, could they at least leave a couple centimeters around the edge clean so you can get a grip on the thing?

And how do I get that adhesive off the fabric?
