How to Remove Undersuit logos?

Recommended Posts

I have an under armor undersuit with what seems to be ironed on patch logos.

 

Has anyone removed these successfully? I'm thinking of trying an iron or heat gun with a pair of needle nose pliers or a scraping tool.

 

Thanks.

I'm with Eric on this, I would highly recommend keeping heat away from Lycra . You can also buy fabric specific black pens which do not wash out.

Another vote for simple sharpie here. Just go over the unwanted area a couple times and it will be nice and hidden.

Worked like a charm - just needs to be washed a few times after

That's amazing!! Thank you for sharing this trick!!

Totally welcome!

 

I found out that my wife's "Non-acetone" nail polish remover worked well too and it didn't harm the material.

I used acetone, and scrubbing removed the label but left some light color residue that's not coming out lol. It is cracking and peeling some though, so I think it will eventually get worked off. Goo gone didn't do anything on the UA labels.

Under armor must use some kind of spray paint logo or something, cuz it was a pain to get off!

Glad it helped mate. I doused the old label location with a grease fighting dish soap then put it in the wash with "Tough Stains" laundry soapwhich helped with the residue left behind. After a few washes it was barely noticeable.

By the way, the paint stripping acetone removed it faster for me than nail polish remover.

 

I will try what you suggested.

Thanks for the heads up as I have a feeling this won't be my only compression suit over the next few years and I was planning on using UA next - cheers!

The dish detergent and washing helped very little. I gave up and started sanding the residue off... then the shirt ripped! Doh! I can't recommend UA if you need to remove the label 100%.

 

I ordered some east bay just now, since the logos are not in visible areas. I will keep my UA as spare I guess.

 

Thanks!

Oh no! Very sorry to hear that.

 

I will avoid Under Armor

I have the UA Coolswitch Run top, in addition to the screen printed logos the back of the collar is grey cloth w/ the UA logo in black.

 

I ended up using fabric dye on it that's made for polyester I got from Jo Anne fabric. The instructions have you boil the shirt in the dye for around 30 minutes, when I took it out of the pot the chest logo was flaking off, and the inside printed tag was peeling. I used acetone based polish remover to no effect, will try again w/ 100% acetone from the hardware store. For those having difficulty, I suggest a hot water bath as it does not seem to hurt the material and definitely has an affect on the logos.

A black patch of T-shirt material fabric-glued over the patch?

The Everlast shirt I used from Wally World, the logo has virtually gone and you can't see it unless you're nose to nose with it.

-In my application- this worked out for me but as seen may not work out for all.
