How to Remove Iron-On Transfer

My son started attending a private school this year.  They have a dress code which includes outerwear.  The rule was it had to be a plain navy blue jacket or coat and must have the school’s patch on it.  I already had a jacket my son LOVED and it was very warm and cozy (and happened to be navy blue) but the problem was an iron-on design on the front from the brand (The Children’s Place).  So, I searched the internet and found the various options.  Through trial and error, I was able to remove it and accomplish my goal.

Start by using a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol.  Rub the design and make sure it is soaked.  In some cases, this alone will work.  If it doesn’t, use a wire brush, or scouring pad and also rub on the design.  You may have to do this a couple of times and wash it in between.

In this picture, you can see slight traces of the iron-on left, but after a few more washes, it came out completely.
