Banish Chewing Gum from Clothing or Shoes

7 Mar 2016

If you happen to catch a piece of chewing gum on the sole of your shoe, or even on your clothing, placing the shoe or garment in a freezer compartment is the smartest way to remove it. The gum will turn brittle after about 30 minutes, and can then be carefully pulled off or rubbed away from the material, according to Bernd Glassl from Germany’s trade association of personal care product makers, IWK.

If traces of the gum remain on the surface or if the item is too large to fit in the freezer compartment – a couch for example-you can also place a bag of ice cubes on the affected area. The surface should be chilled enough to remove the gum.
