How to remove chewing gum

Rub ice on the gum to freeze it and scrape off as much as you can with a blunt knife.

If this method isn’t working, heat the gum instead using a hairdryer, then peel off the melted gum, using a plastic bag over your hand.  Increase the heat by rubbing in a deep-heating rub before using the hairdryer.

Once the gum has been lifted, wash the spot with mild detergent and water.
