Removed tape residue from the front and glue and paper from the back.  Made a nice patch really nice.

I ran some warm water over the patch until it was thoroughly wet.  I then put a little Dawn directly on both sides and gently worked it into the patch.  I would rinse it every once in a while and reapply.  All together it was about a 20 minute process.  I then pat dried it flat with a clean dish towel and laid it flat on a napkin to air dry.  The tape residue was the worse part and required some gentle rubbing to get it loose.  Be sure to go in the direction of the weave.

Acetone will remove glue and tape residue and will not harm patch. Cotton only and don't let it soak in too long.
