Quoting MEENASTRID:

Lighter Fluid. Listen to me now...believe me later. Drip a couple drops on it and it will release. No mess. Works great on hair.

This is what I was going to suggest as well.  You need something to break down the components of the gum.  Lighter fluid won't stain or smell once you wash it either.

 How did it go, OP?  Were you able to get the gum out?
