So last load 2 stickers made it past me. Now the stickers are gone, but the gummy backing is left. I picked off as much as I could by hand, so now what?

One of the items is fleece -- it was washed in cold & dried on warm. The other is cotton, it was washed on cold twice & hung to dry. Any thoughts are welcome...I'm having a hard time coming up with stuff that I think will remove the stickiness without staining the clothes. TIA!

heat a iron up place a towel between the iron and the shirt and slowly rub the iron back and forth it should warm up the sticky and you can rub it away.

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I ended up getting some Goo Gone & doing that. It worked great! I probably would have done the TTO though if I hadn't already done the Goo Gone. Had the TTO already too...but we needed Goo Gone anyway for some of our other accidents so it's all good.
