How To Remove Gum From Clothing



Removing gum from clothing or other fabrics may seem impossible, however there are several products that will help loosen and remove gum from almost anything.


Materials Needed


Peanut butter, warm vinegar, toothbrush, Dawn dishwashing liquid, ice cube




  • Use an ice cube to harden the gum, remove as much as you can by hand
  • Wet the area down with warm vinegar and agitate with a toothbrush


Peanut butter can also be used to remove gum from fabric.  However, the grease from peanut butter can cause grease stains.  To remove the grease stain use Dawn dishwashing liquid and agitate with a cloth or toothbrush. 


This should eliminate the gum.  Wash the clothing in your washing machine and the stain should be gone.
