How do you get chewing gum out of a pair of pants/trousers?
I must have sat on some! Ugh! and now I can't seem to get it off. I tried scrubbing with hot water, then making it hard with cold water. Threw them in the washing machine and the nasty stuff is still there! help!
I've heard that sticking them in the freezer for a couple of hours will make the gum much easier to remove.
I agree with Cobrafan. Put it in the freezer or rub ice in it. Peanut butter removes gum but then what will you do about the peanut butter stain? Good luck.
Yes....what 2 other hubbers have suggested........ICE.......freeze the pants or just load a bunch of ice on the stuck gum. When it freezes completely, use a butter knife and it should pop right off!
Yep , My advice is the same as everyonr else. If it doesn´t work , have a look for one of those little bottles of dirt devil remover they sell in UK supermarkets. They do them for practically every disaster you can name.
Good luck Nell.
I agree with the freezing strategy. This allows the removal of all but the residue. The rest I soak in GooGone, a wonderful product. Once I've loosened the rest from the fibers, I wash as usual . I avoid putting the item in the dryer until I'm sure the entire spot is safely out.
