  • if it is not too bad, try some peanut butter the oil in the peanut butter should loosen it up some.

  • Ice...get an ice cube and put it on the gum...after it gets stiff and hard it is much easier to remove.

  • I did that once on purpose because my mom wouldn't let me cut my hair. hahahaha Peanut butter and ice are what I've always heard.

  • cooking oil or baby oil is the best ...peanut butter today doesnt have enough oil in it. the peanut butter makes more of a mess than anything. ice works but you end up breaking the hair and its difficult to work with.
    just load up the spot with the oil kinda work it around then gently start peeling away the hair from the gum
    DON"T BRUSH THE HAIR WITH THE GUM IN IT!!!

  • Baby Oil works the best! trust me..peanut butter is okay, but the oil lets the gum slide right out!!!
