After waiting a few minutes to let the cleaner soak in, wipe glue residue off with a paper towel, and scrub any leftover glue with a toothbrush. Repeat the procedure on the front as many times as needed to make the glue disappear.
Put down paper towels to blot up excess liquid. Pour Goo Gone onto the back of the fabric behind the glue residue. Make sure the fabric is saturated in the solvent.
