Removing Gum

Gum can be a tricky thing to get out of the carpet especially if you find it later on when it’s been smashed deeper into the carpet.

One tactic you can try is filling a bag full of ice and places it on the gum.  This will freeze the gum and make it easier to pick the gum out of the carpet.  This works in some cases but not all.

You can also try heat.  You can use your blow dryer in attempts to get the gum heated enough to lift it from the carpet fibers.

Sometimes Goo Gone and Lemon Oil help in removing sticky substances.   Gum can be a nightmare but take your time and you can get out this stick substances.  And maybe after this experience don’t let the kids have gum in the house!
