Okay ... we just had new carpet installed in my home office and I dropped some gum on the floor and stepped on it. I need to get this cleaned up before the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX gets home and she'll be here in an hour.

I google up some stuff, then I did a web search that says use ice. I only have one shot at this and I have to get it right. Any Planeteers know how to do this? Is ice the best?

Peanut butter or ice, FAX. I used ice once, and once it hardens, you can scrape it off.

Pestilence
07-11-2008, 04:23 PM
WD-40 also works well to remove gum. Spray it onto the gum spot and smoosh it around a little bit. Let it sit for fifteen or twenty minutes and then remove. The gum will slide right off the carpet! It may take two applications, but the gum should come right out. Lighter fluid is also something you can use, which you wouldn’t expect. This is not recommended around fireplaces or where people are smoking (or anywhere else it might be exposed to heat or flames.) With these latter two methods, you’ll probably want to test a hidden area of your carpet first to be sure no damage will be incurred. After the gum is removed, clean out any residue or leftover product with a damp cloth.

The ice will work but you have to leave it on the gum long enough for the gum to freeze. After it freezes you hit it with the back of a spoon or similar object so the gum will break away from the fibers. I get this question a couple of times a year. This is the procedure recommended by the manufacturers.

I've long believed gum should be outlawed and anyone who uses or makes it should be thrown in prison. I believe today FAX may see the wisdom to my idea.

You need a can of freon, not compressed air. Try Radio Shack.If it is deep pile rug freon will freeze the strands of carpet and when you try to scrape the gum out the strands may (probably will) break.

He hasn't said what type of carpet it is. I was just pointing out that freon, not compressed air will freeze the gum.

Put a quarter on the gum, press hard. Oh look, a quarter is on the floor. OR, carpet the entire floor with gum, and proclaim the new carpet "some new fad" called sticky gum floor. I dunno.
