Who knew, that peanut butter could unstick the gum from nearly anything
Peanut butter will remove gum from things like:
Carpet, and tile
even a bubble popped on the face and into the eyebrows can be cleaned with peanut butter
The oils in peanut butter have a way of neutralizing the sticky part of the chewing gum. It begins to dissolve the chewing gum into a soft and almost slippery mass that is then easily removed from whatever it is stuck to.
It is really easy to do: Just smear the peanut butter over the gum and rub it in. Let it sit for a minute or two then work the gum and peanut butter mass loose with your fingers.
I have used this trick on several occasions and it works perfectly. The only trouble is getting rid of the grease stain that can be left from the peanut butter. I have found that on carpet, clothing and other items that Dawn dish soap is a great agent for getting rid of the leftover peanut butter residue.
I saved my favorite blouse this way and I have saved several children and parents from the frustrating thoughts of having to cut the gum from hair. I hope that this helps.
Disclaimer: Please use this at your own risk. The peanut butter could stain some items. I would not use it on a dry clean only items.
