How to get chewing gum off clothes

Chewing gum on clothing is annoying and, let's face it, pretty disgusting. Let us show you how to get out of your sticky situation.

What you’ll need

  • Blunt Knife

  • Washing up liquid

  • Salt

  • Access to a freezer/washing machine

Method

  • Freeze the garment by putting it in the freezer for a couple of hours

  • Scrape as much gum off as you can by using the blunt knife once the garment is frozen. This should get rid of most if not all of the gum.

  • Scrub the garment using washing up liquid and salt. Rub against the thread of the fabric and the last of the mess should come off.

  • Wash the garment in the machine and everything should come out as new!
