Removing Heat n Bond from Fabric?

I goofed a bit on one of my costumes. Well anways, I had attached some fabric onto some other fabric, and I accidentally put the fabric in the wrong place using Heat N bond (the ultra hold one) I managed to peel the fabric off and place it in the right spot, but I have that nasty residue left over, and Im wondering if there is a good way to remove it? I was thinking of washing it, but I dont think that would do anything. Any suggestions???

more heat, and a clean popsicle stick to scrape off the gooeyness.

If the fabric can take it, then a solvent like lighterfluid or Goof-Off my work, but you'd need to test it on a hidden area incase of discoloration.

You might not be able to get it off. Sorry, it's happened to me too.

Well, what Tentacle Guy said, it was working a bit, I just went over it with my iron, which picked up quite a bit of the adhesive. Im not too worried with the iron, I have this stuff to remove that gunk.

*thanks Tentacle_Guy*

You're welcome
I've gotten all kinds of assorted adhesives, foams, epoxies, resins, compounds, and goos on my clothes in my time, and i've gotten pretty good at getting them out.
