Melted Gum

How in the world do you go about getting melted bubble gum off of carpet? My son just walked into gum outside and then brought it into the house on his shoe. Any ideas? Thanks

Well I figured I would try some stuff that you would use to get it out of hair. So I tried ice and did get the majority up. I have one little piece that I cannot seem to grab a hold of yet to get.

Ice does wonders!  Have you tried picking out the remaining piece with tweezers?

Depending on how deep into the carpet it is you could cut it out. It is tedious and a pin in the butt, but if you use small cuticle scissors and cut as close to the gun as possible and one carpet strand at a time it is possible to get it out and the carpet still look good.

I actually got the last little bit believe it or not by just pulling up and cutting. It worked. Hopefully this don’t happen again. Thanks for the help though.

Glad you got the last little bit out!  At least it wasn’t matted too deeply in the carpet pile…that would’ve been a mess.
