  • use an ice cube to freeze it and scrape the hardened gum off w/ a knife. Pretreat the rest of the stain for at least 5 min rinse and if need be repeat

  • Or put the piece of clothing in the freezer for a few hours. But the above is right. Freeze and chip it off.

  • if it's something small like a sock then you can put it in the freezer and i know that'll help... i've heard peanut butter helps to.

  • ICE HAS ALWAYS WORKED FOR ME PUTTING IT IN THE FREEZER MIGHT HELP IT ALONG YOU CAN TRY SCRAPING IT WITH A QUATER TO LOOSEN IT FROM THE FABRIC... THIS MAY SOUND EXTREME BUT AS A LAST RESOURCE YOU CAN TRY SOME ZIPPO LIGHTER FLUID THAT USUALLY TAKES ANYTHING OUT YOU WILL JUST HAVE TO WASH IT REAL GOOD AFTER YOU USE IT THOUGH GOOD LUCK,,,

  • Ice...you can use peanutbutter but if you do dab some Dawn dish liquid and rub it in before washing to get rid of any peanut oil.
