Removing Gum from Hair

If your child gets chewing gum stuck in their hair use peanut butter to get it out. Using your thumb and forefinger rub the peanut butter on the hair and the gum miraculously disappears! Use a little at a time until the gum is gone. Works every time! Of course, you then have to wash the peanut butter out of their hair.

Actually any oil will also remove the gum. It's the oil in the peanutbutter that loosens the gum.

Ok everyone is gonna say peanut butter! But that may not work, using butter, put butter in the microwave and have it melted. Sip your fingers in it when its not hot, and put the melted butter on your fingers and run it through the gum. It will loosen and loosen till it comes out.

Hope you get the gum out!
