How do I remove iron on patches?

Iron On Patch Removal

You should be able to remove an iron on patch by reheating the patch with an iron to warm and loosen the glue. Working from the edges, slowly peel off the patch. You will likely need to re-heat the patch a few times. If any glue residue remains after you get the patch off, you can try rubbing the area with lighter fluid.

Lighter fluid does absolutely nothing whatsoever.

I hear that a blow dryer works too, instead of an iron.

Glue residue can be removed with ether starting fluid (also removes grease).
