There’s nothing more annoying and embarrassing than accidentally sitting on chewing gum that some idiot left on a bench, bus seat or a dark cinema auditorium. It’s enough to ruin your whole day, because you probably won’t be going home for a good few hours and you’re stuck with this unsightly blob on your bum that won’t come off despite your best efforts!
At least when you get home you’ll be able to follow these simple domestic cleaning tips on how to remove that awful chewing gum.
Submerge the clothing in boiling water.
Scrape the chewing gum off with an old toothbrush or a dull knife.
