Take as much of the gum off using a dull knife or some other scraper like item, then use Goo Gone on the remainder of gum, then wash your item. In my opinion a bottle of Goo Gone should be in every home. Goo Gone is useful for thousand of sticky things. Just remember a little goes a long way.

Here is a simple but effective remedy for removing gum. Simply take an ice cube and "freeze" the gum.

Remove the frozen gum with a butter knife. Repeat the process until completely gone, then launder as usual.
