You should know that gum immune to machine-washing, but attempts to wipe, scrape, or peel gum out of clothing with bare hands often result in an even bigger mess. The ways you get rid of Gum from Clothes is by freezing your clothing with the gum stain on it. Once it hardens you just peel it off. Freezing is generally a good way to quickly harden it and scrape it off in one chunk. But when gum is stuck to more delicate clothes, heating tends to be a better strategy for removing it without damaging clothing. Since heating alone just makes gum more pliable, another ingredient is needed to loosen it from fabric, such as deep heating rubs like Bengay or Move.
