  • I froze the shirt then picked at it. Anytime it would start to warm up, back in the freezer it went. Good Luck

  • Probably a last resort method but I used WD40 to get gum out of carpet before, but that could cause a greasy stain problem. Worth a shot if the other recommendations don't work. You could always then try Zout to get the grease out if the gum comes up.
