Chewing Gum from carpet and how to remove

Chewing gum in your carpet is unsightly and can be difficult to remove if let for a long time.

I have found that the best method is  Boiling Water.    What won’t that wreck my carpet?  Answer is no.

  • You will need, jug of boiled water (be Careful) Towel, old butter knife (not serrated), paper towel, a couple of drops of eucalyptus oil
  • pour small amount of boiled water onto the stain and slide the blunt knife under the gum when it has softened
  • wipe old gum onto the paper towel
  • pour a little more water on if gum is still visible and slide the knife under the gum
  • wipe knife
  •  Use a couple of drops of eucalyptus oil to break the final bond
  • agitate with the back of the knife
  • rinse with hot water and use old towel to absorb the excess from the carpet
