  • 1.IF it is a high pile you can cut it out. Cut very close to it and only as much as needed. 2. You can also try an ice cube to freeze it and then chip it away. 3. There is a srpay you can buy that will "super" freeze it and then you pick it off. You'd have to Google the spray - I don't remember where to buy it or the name. Good Luck!!

  • goo gone may work but I iced and used scissors to cup it out. Leaves a small spot but not that noticeable..Better than seeing gum
