Try spraying WD-40 on the gum, it really works. Ruthie

Try putting the clothing in the freezer and after that the gum should pull right out.

Just use cooking oil(vegetable, canola etc). The oil will break down the gum as well as WD-40 and should be safe on all clothes. Make sure you scrape off all the gum then rub some dish soap into the oil spot left behind and launder in hot water.

I just washed and dryer a blanket that had gum on it. I tried a vinegar method and it worked pretty good. The hot vinegar just pulls the gum off.

Old trick, peanut butter! It's oily and really loosens up the gum when its worked in! Great for getting it out of kids hair too!
