I'm always happy to find buttons, and who could pass up this many (around 400) for just $2? I was so excited by this find that I didn't notice that the buttons are hot glued to the fabric. Every last one of 'em.
I only bought these because I wanted the buttons, as buttons, not as curtain decorations. I can easily pull the buttons off the fabric. The problem is that the hardened hot glue sticks to the buttons.
Here's where you come in......how do I get the @#$% glue off the buttons? I've tried peeling it off, which is time consuming and will destroy my fingernails. I've read suggestions for ironing the back side of the fabric (still leaves glue on the buttons) and freezing (haven't tried that yet).
There are some nice buttons. Nothing too spectacular though. Can't decide if I should invest the time to do this, or just re-donate them.
