How to Get Gum Out of Clothing in 5 Ways
While sticking your damaged article of clothing in the freezer might initially feel like you’re hiding it in shame, it’s actually the first step to removing the gum from your clothing. After about an hour in the freezer, the gum should completely harden, at which point you can remove your clothing from the cold. Then, use a credit card, paint scraper, or dull knife to gently scrape off the hard gum. Alternatively, you can place an ice pack on the stain for 20 minutes to speed up the process.
