How to Remove Vinyl Letters From a Jersey

Save

You can remove vinyl lettering or logos from a T-shirt or jersey by using common household items rather than purchasing expensive and potentially dangerous chemical solutions.

Things You'll Need

  • Hair dryer
  • Razor blade
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Rag

Step 1

Clean and dry the jersey as detailed on the garment label.

Step 2

Heat the vinyl lettering with the hair dryer until it becomes warm to the touch.

Step 3

Slide the razor blade under one corner of the vinyl lettering and gently lift until you can pull the letter up with your fingers.

Step 4

Apply the rubbing alcohol to any remaining glue left beneath the lettering. Let it soak for one minute.

Step 5

Rub the moist glue remnants with a clean dry rag until they break apart and fall off.

Step 6

Rewash the jersey according to the label specifications.

Warning

  • When warming the vinyl lettering with the hair dryer, do not overheat the letters or you risk permanent damage to the jersey.
