Here’s The Right Way To Get Gum Out Of Clothes, Hair, And Everything Else

We were all kids once, and remember wanting to tease our friends by pretending to put bubble gum in their hair at recess. Heck, me and my friend once had a prank war with chewing gum that ended in two ruined T-shirts for the both of us. Or so we thought.

Turns out, there’s a way to remove that stuck on mess from any sort of material. So put down the scissors and don’t throw out those shirts! Here’s the foolproof way to get-it-done.

First, grab an ice cube and apply pressure around the stuck-on gum. You’ll want to freeze it in order for it to harden and make it easy to remove as one piece.

If you find that it is still fairly bonded to the the article of clothing, then use some full-strength white vinegar to chemically soften the bottom while the rest stays firmly together. Scrape off the remaining gum after this.

But what about other fabrics and (God forbid) our hair?!
