Are labels removable?
Waterproof Labels are removable. Simply lift one corner of the label and slowly lift until the entire label is off.

To remove this adhesive you can use rubbing alcohol, vegetable oil or an adhesive remover such as Goo Gone®.

Why are my iron-on's coming off?
If an iron-on is coming off after being applied this is typically due to improper adhesion to the fabric. This can happen due to the iron not getting hot enough, not enough pressure being applied during ironing, or not ironing long enough. If this happens and you did indeed set your iron to the cotton setting, no steam - Empty the iron of all water, set it to no steam, and set the thermostat to just above the cotton setting (not all thermostats on irons are the same). Be sure to apply pressure during ironing and iron on a firm surface following your enclosed application instruction ironing time. Once the iron-on cools, check the edges to ensure they are fully adhered. If not all edges are fully adhered, iron again until all edges are fully adhered. You can also flip the garment and iron from the reverse
Why are my Peel 'n Stix clothing labels not staying on my clothing?
Peel 'n Stix Clothing Labels must be applied to garment care tags or to the largest part of tagless imprints inside clothing, not directly to fabric. After applying the labels be sure to wait 24 hours before laundering. Do not use detergents with essential oils. Essential oils can weaken the adhesive.
If these steps were followed and your Peel 'n Stix Labels are still coming off, did you ensure your hands were clean, dry and free from lotions/oils prior to removing the label from the paper backing? Please try another label following these steps and you should have no further issues. However, if you do please contact us so we can assist you in troubleshooting the issue further.
Are your labels safe?
Our labels are made of non-hazardous materials. Because our labels are removable we recommend they be applied by an adult and children are supervised when using anything with a label applied.
