Have a bunch of stones we pulled off an old costume but we are having a hard time getting the glue off the back of the stones. Has anyone done this successfully? Any suggestions? THANK YOU in advance! [smile]

Yes! Soak the stones in a bowl of citrus cleaner like Goo Gone. Wipe them off using paper towels. (Perhaps repeat). Rinse in water. Rinse in window cleaner. Let dry. It’s a bit of effort but the stones are as good as new.

(Soaking fabric in citrus cleaner let’s the stones slide off with a butter knife.)

And here I've always been spending hours just trying to pick off the glue!  Thanks for the tip, Prancer!

THANK YOU so much! I never thought of Goo Gone!! We have been using a gel nail polish remover - gets the stone off the costume but not the glue off the stones, is no fun to work with, and is expensive!  And haha... Good point, NCKDAD!

Thank you, again!
