Gum on clothing

gumIt happens to all of us, you sit down to find that some kind soul has left a gift on the chair and now you have gum on your best clothing, here’s the solution: Egg whites.  Brush egg white onto the gum with a toothbrush. Let sit for 15 minutes and then launder the item as normal. Alternatively harden by using an ice cube or put in freezer for several hours. Scrape off excess.  When all gum has been removed, treat the remaining spot with an equal mixture of liquid dish washing soap and white distilled vinegar. Rub in gently and then wash the garment as usual.
