How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

526 posts in this topic

Thanks @JoeM7392 for the tip on the gloves. I used a pair of latex gloves last night to scrub the last bits of adhesive out. I got a little ambitious with the acetone in one spot and left a slight mark on the fabric that I'll treat with OxiClean today.

The cleaning has come along nicely. The problem is that I pilled the heck out of the jersey in parts when I removed the stitching. I have a box o' jerseys on my way up to Keener, including this one. Hopefully when Keener does this jersey up, it will cover some of the nicks to the material. The biggest concern was with the nameplate, I left two or three 1/2 inch holes along the outer area of the plate where the stitching was. Lesson learned to be more careful.
