How to remove chewing gum on carpetChewing Gum on Carpet

  • Place several ice cubes in a plastic bag and press against the chewing gum so that it gets brittle and can be pulled or broken off. Small bits can be cut out.
  • For any remaining gum, blot with odorless mineral spirits or alcohol or Liqua-Gel on a white towel. Do not pour directly on the carpet or you will destroy the latex glue holding the primary and secondary backing together. Scrape up residue. Re-clean with the dry cleaning fluid.
  • If unsuccessful:
