Chewing Gum Removal From Carpet

 

  1. Scrape and remove excessive chewing gum using a blunt spatula, spoon, or bone scraper. Never use a knife because it might harm the fibers.
  2. Freeze the gum with Gum Remover, then break and remove the frozen pieces.
  3. Apply Citrus Spotter (Grease, Tar, Adhesive Remover) sparingly to the center of the affected area. Allow 5-10 minutes dwell time. PRECAUTION: Pre-test in an inconspicuous area.
  4. Rinse with COLD water to neutralize.
  5. Blot thoroughly using a clean white terry cloth towel or absorbent blotting material. Continue shifting to clean dry areas of towel applying downward pressure.
  6. Dry the area immediately using a circular fan or hair dryer (no heat) to prevent wicking. Repeat steps if necessary.
