Removing Chewing Gum From Carpet

I tried ice cubes on chewing gum that is on the carpet, but it still has left some pink patches.

Can anyone help me, please?

You might try using Goof Off to remove the gum, and then some soap and water to remove the residue from the Goof Off. If you have one of those carpet steam cleaners, that would be fabulous to use to remove the residue. (07/31/2007)

There is a product called Freeze-It Chewing Gum Remover that is in a spray can. When you spray it on chewing gum or candle wax, it freezes it for easy removal. It is manufactured by Quest Chemical Company, and is probably available at Janitorial Supplies stores.

Peanut butter & mayo will both work, but it's the oil in these products that break down the gum. So skip right to the oil, vegetable or canola, to do the job fast and your clean up will be easier too. (08/08/2007)
