You’re at a friend’s house and you’re having a great time. You’re laughing and joking but then, someone offers you a piece of gum and you accidentally drop it on your shirt. Oh no! Now you’ve got a big gum stain on your shirt. And you’re friends are all laughing at you. But don’t worry, there’s a way to get that gum off of your shirt.
How to get gum off of clothes easily
If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly finding gum stuck to your clothes. It’s so annoying! But don’t worry, there’s an easy way to get rid of it.
First, you’ll need some ice. Put the ice in a bag and hold it against the gum for a few minutes. This will harden the gum and make it easier to remove.
Next, use a blunt object to scrape the gum off. A butter knife or credit card works well for this.
Once the gum is gone, you can wash your clothes as usual. The ice will have removed any residual gum and your clothes will be as good as new!
Alternatively, you can put your clothes in the freezer before scraping the gum off. It will do too.
Let’s not overcomplicate things. The best way to remove gum on clothes is ice, not alcohol, not peanut butter, not oil or vinegar. Ice will harden the gum. Then just scrape it off. It’s as easy as it gets. Sometimes, the simplest solutions are the best.
