  • Try ice to freeze and break off, try wd-40, or rubbing alcohol. This is all I could find...good luck!

  • My kids got that all over my couch and floor....

    I started wtih ice... got up the biggest clumps.

    Then I used WD-40 and a tooth brush. I put the WD-40 ON the toothbrush and worked in very small circles. Basically I got the stuff to roll up in a ball so I could use the ice again and pull it out of the fibers. i kept at it until it was all gone. It would probably work to spray it on the carpet, but I was afraid that it would stain the fabric.
