How to Remove Chewing Gum Stains

Skipping down the street in the summer sun, chewing some hubba bubba just for old time’s sake: we can see the scene clearly. Chewing gum is one of those pesky, unique substances that can give you quite a headache when trying to get it out of hair, braces, and especially your clothes! Here are two methods to help you remove it from your clothes:

METHOD 1

Step 1

Freeze

Place the garment in a freezer bag and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours until the gum has hardened.
