How to Get Gum Out of Carpet

  1. Place ice cubes into a plastic bag and place on top of the gum until it becomes frozen
  2. Break or cut off the hardened gum
  3. Blot any remaining gum with a dry cleaning solvent
  4. Allow solvent to set for a few minutes
  5. Scrape off
  6. Repeat until all the gum is out of the carpet

This method works best for removing hard or dried gum from your carpet.

Need to remove soft gum from your carpet? This process is a little easier.

  1. Grab a wipe (such as a GooGone wipe).
  2. Pinch the gum at the root of the carpet and pull up. Do your best to pull as much of the gum up from the base of the carpet as possible.
  3. Repeat this process until the gum has been removed.
