Gum on Suede

I have a suede jacket that I put in the dryer to freshen it up before wearing it. I failed to check the pockets after it had been in the closet all year. To my surprise I had gum all over the inside of my dryer and have spots of gum all over my suede jacket.


I got the gum out of my dryer with this website's advice, but I need to know if there's anything that will work to get the spots of gum that's all over my suede jacket out? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I got this from How Things Work:

Follow these steps to remove chewing gum stains from Suede: Very carefully scrape to remove excess. Gently rub an art gum eraser over the remaining substance. If any stain remains, cautiously rub the spot with an emery board or extra fine (number 000) sandpaper. You are removing a fine layer of the hide, so work slowly and carefully.
