You step in chewing gum out on the street but don't realize it until you
tracked that gross, sticky mess into your home. If you’re here, you may be trying to get gum out of your carpet, furniture or even your car carpet or upholstery.

The most common and reliable way to remove gum from your carpet is through the power of temperature. The first method we can look at is using cold. Head to the freezer and grab a couple of ice cubes. Put the cubes into a freezer bag to avoid getting anything wet.

Since gum is chewed in your 98.6-degree mouth and you store it at room temperature, you probably don’t know what happens when it gets cold…really cold, to the point of freezing. Well, frozen gum like most anything in a frozen state gets very hard. In fact, when it gets frozen and hard, it doesn’t like that state and becomes brittle and falls apart.

Freeze the gum with ice cubes for about 30 seconds. Once the gum is frozen solid, use a spoon to lift up the glob and very carefully cut the strands of carpet as close to the gum as possible. If you cut only a small
amount of carpet, the spot shouldn't be noticeable.

This tip in some cases depending on the product can also work for slime and slime based products. We cannot guarantee the end result will be the same.
