Remove chewing gum from clothing

Tip by Superhero2012 | 2012-06-16 at 18:13

It's annoying, when there is chewing gum sticking on your clothes, for example, you have not paid enough attention or you have sat down into a piece of gum.

But there is a simple solution about how to get rid of the bubble gum easily: simply put the garment into the freezer overnight! The next morning, the gum has become quite brittle and crumbly and can be removed so easily.

The problem arises only, when the chewing gum must be removed from a carpet, a rug or upholstered furniture! Because eventually, these things you cannot easily put into the freezer cabinet without any problems.

In this case, just use ice cubes or ice spray. That is perhaps also for clothes some more gentle (although, of course, you have to be careful, however, to make not break anything). Also ice cubes and ice spray make the chewing gum hard, friable and easily to remove.

Here is another possibility: put your clothes into hot water with gall soap on the gum. Let it appeal for some time and voila, gall soap sometimes works wonders!

Who does not have gall soap and also has no place in the freezer, can take nail polish remover. You just have to care about that the color of the clothes will still be retained. So the best is, to test it before somewhere, where it is not obvious. And, that is important, you have to use nail polish remover without acetone!

Make the area with the chewing gum briefly wet with the remover, wait 30-40 seconds and then scrape off the chewing gum with a knife. What you then still see, will go out in the next wash!
