Magic Heat Transfer Vinyl Remover Review (Removing Glitter, Smooth, Printable, & Holographic HTV)

I've shared several techniques for removing Heat Transfer Vinyl mistakes on Silhouette School - but today I'm going to show you the easiest and quickest one yet!

Well, let me just tell you...some days it's good to be a guinea pig! Holy shnickies I was literally about to throw out this burlap pillow cover since I put the wrong state on it (that was a palm to forehead moment) until it met the Magic Vinyl Remover.
This stuff comes in a big 16 oz bottle and if you use it all up in your lifetime you've made a whole heck of a lot of HTV mistakes so just consider it a once-in-a-lifetime purchase. Seriously.  The bottle also may make you scared for your life. There are a lot of warnings on it. Seriously.  So get out your rubber gloves and go outside where the fumes won't knock you silly.

You'll need to cut off the tip of the bottle then unscrew the cap and make a SMALL puncture in the seal.

This HTV was really melted into my burlap pillow cover as you can see.

When you're ready, turn your garment inside out.  Pour a small amount of the magic HTV remover on from the back, so it hits the adhesive side of the HTV.  You don't need to saturate the area.

Then flip the garment right side out. You'll see that the HTV's texture has changed....

Use your weeding tool to pick up the corner or just your finger...pull off the HTV in large sections. Ah-maz-ing.

If it doesn't all come off, flip the garment back inside out and repeat the process with a little more Magic Vinyl Remover.

So we know it works with large pieces of HTV, but how easily does it remove smaller pieces? And can glitter, holographic and printable heat transfer material be removed, too?  I put them all to the test on a cotton onesie.

The glitter literally started curling on its own and easily removed.  The holographic and printable were easy to pull up from the corner although the holographic left some adhesive behind. NOTE:  I did launder the onesie, but the adhesive from the holographic piece faded, but was not completely removed.

The detailed smooth HTV was only difficult (and I am hesitant to even use that word) because it was so small I couldn't get a good grasp on it to rip it up. Once I repeated the process with a second round of the Magic Vinyl Remover it literally curled up on its own and required no work from me.

Given all the warnings on the bottle I would definitely launder the fabric - especially if you're working on removing HTV from a shirt or other clothing that will be in contact with your skin.
