Removing Bubblegum!

How do you remove bubblegum from a floor mat, its not in my boot all nice and dry :(

Got some on there from the damn bunnigs mile end car park the other week, didnt want to pull it off right away as that would have made it worse, so have left if for a week so what is the best way to get rid of it ?

Re: Removing Bubblegum!

Petrol on a rag should get it off, with a bit of rubbing. I have also used the cheap spray on degreaser from supachep to get it off.

Definately the ice! It won't take out the dye from your carpet like solvents might.
It works on hair too..

Re: Removing Bubblegum!

I have used a heavy duty citrus cleaner from my dads factory, just dab it on wait 2 mins and "pinch" off the carpet.

I don't know if the citrus cleaners they sell in stores will work, worth a try.

Good Luck!

Big Kev goo remover is awesome stuff. Try it after the ice trick.
