I left chewing gum in my pocket and it got all over my clothes. Help!
Apply Goo Gone to each gum area separately. Let the Goo Gone work for 2-3 minutes to set. After treating, the gum will be able to be scraped off easily from surface and then wash clothes as normal to remove any leftover residue. Check them before putting them back into the dryer, repeat cleaning of any areas as necessary.
