Get out a nice dull butter knife and scrape away all
that gummy, gooky stuff. Do it carefully to avoid
damaging the fabric. Then place the stained area on
a pad of soft cloth, stain side down, and dampen a pad
of cotton with grease solvent. Sponge the back of the
stain with solvent.Repeat, using only a small amount
of solvent each time. Work from the outside edge of
the stain to its center, sponging irregularly around
the edge so there will be no definite line when the
fabric dries. Keep changing the absorbant pad so the
spot is not resting on a soiled area.
Chewing Gum, Clothing
Get out the ice cube tray and hold a cube over the gum
to harden it. Now scrape it off with a dull knife. Go
over the back of the stain with a drycleaning solution.
Or try this. Apply pre-wash to spot. Let stay for two
or three minutes, then remove loose gum. Continue to
apply spray and rub between fingers gently to loosen.
Remove remaining gum residue. Wash as usual.
Chewing Gum, Hair
Apply baby oil or peanut butter to gum to loosen. Remove
gum and wash hair as usual.
