This is a nice hack! I have always had a problem with my daughter sticking her gum to his shirt or shorts instead of throwing it away. I think this is the easiest simplest way to remove gum. I hope it could work with any kind of fabric. I will definitely give this a try!

We tried this with my mom once and if you follow the insructions well you could remove a huge chunk of the gum. getting gum stuck in your favorite clothes is a bummer. This craft should work well for most fabrics but you need to be patient enough for the ice cubes to freeze the gum.

I have tried this before but it did not work but I did not put a ice cube on bottom of fabric and one on top and did not leave it on the fabric for 30 minutes. I am going to give this a try again with this tutorial and see if it works better because my grand kids get gum on their clothes and on my carpet. Does it work on carpet?
