Chewing gum can be quite annoying, especially when it sticks to unwanted places like carpets, clothes or walls. But don’t worry, with a few simple tricks you can easily remove the gum without making a mess. Here are 8 tips that can help you:

  1. Ice cube method: Place a few ice cubes in a plastic bag and place it over the stuck gum. Ice allows the gum to harden and become brittle. You can then gently scrape off the gum.
  2. Heat treatment: use a hair dryer to heat the gum. The heat softens the gum, making it easier to remove. However, use a low heat or cold level to avoid damaging delicate surfaces.
  3. Duct Tape Tip: Take a piece of painter’s tape or crepe and press it onto the gum. Then carefully remove the tape. The gum should stick to the tape and come off the surface.
  4. Oil or butter: apply a small amount of vegetable oil or melted butter to the chewing gum and leave for a few minutes. Oil or butter helps dissolve the gum, making it easier to remove.
  5. Vinegar Solution: Mix a little vinegar with warm water and soak the affected area. Vinegar helps dissolve chewing gum. Use a sponge or cloth to wipe away the gum.
  6. Lemon juice: apply a little fresh lemon juice to the chewing gum and let it work. Lemon juice contains acid which can dissolve chewing gum. You can then carefully remove the gum.
  7. Toothpaste: Apply a small amount of toothpaste to the gum and rub it gently. Toothpaste contains certain ingredients that can dissolve chewing gum. Rinse the area thoroughly after removing it.
  8. Alcohol: Gently rub the chewing gum with a cloth or cotton swab moistened with a little alcohol (e.g. isopropyl alcohol). Alcohol helps dissolve the gum and remove it.

It is important to proceed with patience and caution to avoid damaging the surfaces. Test again
