Well, that didn't take long

Just a few hours in my sewing room and I have goofed big time. I was trying to do the hoopless embroidery for my hand towels and now have a stickie residue that will not come off :shock:
HELP!! I think I remember now, that I should use a basting spray and not the stickie stuff, but it is to late for that.

Try a little Eucalyptus oil ....it loves removing sticky stuff from any surface.
An Aussie product, I keep it in the cupboard all the time. xxx
