Default Removing hot glue

How do you remove hot glue easily after it has already dried so you don't have to trash a bow?????

Take your lighter and heat up the spot then quicklyremove it, i use my fingers, it does sting but its just easier for me.. you might have to repeat a few times but it does come off

I use nail polish remover. Make sure it has acetone. Works every time.

OH MY GOSH. Insane. I can't believe I never knew this.

I pick off as much as I can with my finger nails, then use a hair dryer on high. It melts right into the ribbon & vanishes if it is thin enough. This works for getting rid of the spider-webby hot glue strings too

So glad to have run across this question!!! My daughter prefers her bows on headbands and has just begun to break them. This will certainly be coming into use more often!!

Hmmm...I may have to try this! I hate it when you get that little white stain...especially on black ribbon!
