The best way to remove hot glue from fabric that I know is to freeze it and then scrape off the excess glue. If you do not freeze the fabric, the hot glue will dry up and become hard which will make it more difficult to remove as it will have to be dissolved with alcohol. It is also easier if you use a table knife or scissors as scraping with your hands can cause some of the fibers of the cloth to embed in the dried glue.

Steps to remove hot glue off fabric
1. Put the garment in the freezer for a few hours.
2. Scrape off excess glue with the edge of a scissor or table knife.
3. Once you have gotten most of it off, take some isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol on a cotton ball or cotton swab and dab it on the remaining glue spots.
4. Put on some rubber gloves and gently rub back and forth over the remaining glue, which will cause it to dissolve so that it can be wiped away with a paper towel.
4. Take a needle and pick at what is left until all residue is gone; only work if there are no piles of dried glue left—otherwise, do not touch it because doing so will produce a stain.
Does hot glue wash off fabric?

How to get hot glue off fabric couch?
Hot glue on furniture can be really difficult to get off. Soaking the spot in warm water with dawn dish soap overnight will help, but if that doesn’t work, use some tweezers to pick or scrape off what you can then put rubbing alcohol onto the rest of the glue and let it seep in for a while. First, scrape off as much of the fabric glue as you can with a blunt object like a butter knife or spoon. Then use an ice cube wrapped in a paper towel to freeze the remaining glue. Next, use a cotton ball soaked with nail polish remover to wipe up what’s left of the glue. Finally, spray on some WD-40 and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Use another cotton ball to remove any residue.
How to remove dried hot glue from carpet
To scrape away dried hot glue from a carpet, use a dull knife to gently push the glue off. Then sprinkle talcum powder (also known as Talc) onto the spot and let it sit overnight before vacuuming in the morning. You can also try scrubbing the area with a paste made of water and baking soda. Finally, if all else fails, you can rent a steam cleaner from your local hardware store.
