How To Remove Chewing Gum Stains On Your Clothes

Last Monday, I was totally pissed when I found out that my valuable dress had chewing gum stains. I don't even know where I got it from.  Gladly my Aunt's maid suggested that I use Ice Cubes and scrape it with a butter knife when it already hardens. It took me a while to do the whole process because the stain is three days old already and it is really hard to pick out. I have also thought of using the boiling process and the use of petroleum gas but I just decided for the safest one. 

What You Need:



1. Get Ice cubes and rub it continuously to the area of the chewing gum stains. This may take a long while since you are waiting for the gum residue to harden. I have used about 9 ice cubes for the stain on my dress.

2. When you see that the residues are sticking out a little bit, try to scrape it with a knife. 

3. While carefully doing the second step, brush it with a used toothbrush and your clothes will be as good as it previously were.

yep ice cubes and a little scrapping does miracle!
