You may have accidentally bumped into some double-sided tape, or somebody, such as a young child, may have stuck a piece of double-sided tape onto a clothing item that you own. As with any decal or piece of tape, you may not be able to simply peel the piece of double-sided tape from the clothing item. Use caution when attempting to remove the double-sided tape from clothes so that you do not damage the clothing item.

    Pull the rest of the tape off the clothing item. Do so gently in order to prevent damaging the clothing item.

    White Vinegar

  1. 1

    Soak a sponge or cloth in white vinegar.

  2. 2

    Blot the entire piece of double-sided tape for a minute or so. The tape should start to lift off the clothing item.

    Peel one end of the tape with your finger.
