Somehow, one of my daughter's dolls got gum in its hair. Anyone have any ideas for removing it? Who would have thought that dolls chewed gum? :-) Thanks, Sandy.

To remove the chewing gum from doll's hair, saturate the gum area with peanut butter. Don't be stingy with it. The gum should come out and you can then wash the doll's hair.
Use a beaten egg white. Dip the hair in the egg white and rub. It will dissolve the gum and then you can wash with mild shampoo. This works great for gum on anything i.e. furniture, carpet or your own hair!
I don't know if this will work for a doll, but almost any kind of fat, i.e.,butter, peanut butter, etc. will remove gum from human hair. After the gum is gone, just wash the hair to remove oil. You could also try putting the doll into the freezer overnight to freeze the gum, and see if it will just come off in frozen chunks then.
Try putting the doll in the freezer. The gum will become hard and not sticky and you can break it off the hair.
