Chewing Gum Removal

Chewing Gum Removal

Chewing gum removal is a chore that is the stuff of nightmares.

Being a former teacher and a mother of four gum-chewing boys, I can certainly tell you that there is no easy way to remove gum from carpets, furniture or just about any other surface that you face.

This is especially true if the surface is porous.

You may be tempted to spend hours and hours looking for a home remedy chewing gum removal but I can tell you that there is no quick fix.

The only way I have ever effectively gotten rid of this kind of sticky mess without some professional grade product to help me along.

And I’ve tried it all. My kids got a bunch of the sticky candy intertwined within the fabric of my rug.

There was little I could do in this home chewing gum removal project short of cutting the stuff out and that wouldn’t be good for anyone.

My options were pretty vast, too.

The first thing I tried was ice cubes. Sure, this worked for the surface stuff that really didn’t dig into the fabric of the rug.

But when I got down to the nitty-gritty, I was at a loss.

Nothing worked for the really tough sticky stuff caught up in the fibers of my beautiful rug.

I thought that I was going to have to get the scissors out.

There was just no other way to handle this chewing gum removal task. I started to lament at my loss and began looking at throw rugs to cover the awful, sticky mess that has set up camp in my poor, poor rug.

The whole thing was pretty depressing.

Good thing I kept the scissors at bay and decided to check out my options online.

I came across a product that is specially designed for chewing gum removal. I almost wept at the sight of it.

Actually, I did get a little teary. My tears were mixed with relief and a fear of disappointment.

Well, I most certainly wasn’t disappointed in the chewing gum removal product.

My rug looks as good as new and you can’t tell that anything had even happened at all.

Now I am on my way to my former school to share the good news with the administration.

I’m sure that they will be pleased to discover that there is a commercial grade chewing gum removal product that can take the place of the traditional methods.
