What Removes Chewing Gum From Carpet?

Few things are as frustrating as finding old gum in your carpet.  Luckily, removing chewing gum from carpet is fairly simple.  All you need are two common household items, rubbing alcohol and a spoon.

Check to see if the gum is hard, if it is break the hardened shell to allow the rubbing alcohol to penetrate.  Next apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol on to the gum.  Wait about ten seconds and then scrape the gum out with the spoon.

An Alternative Method for Removing Gum

If you don’t have any rubbing alcohol on hand then you may want to try freezing the gum.  You can use an ice pack or an upside-down can of compressed air. Make sure the gum is nice and frozen then use your spoon to chip away at it until it’s gone!
