A Gummy Situation
How To Get Gum Out
I had a problem with gum in Katie's hair a while back and I posted about it, but forgot to link the post under an easy tab or label.
How To Get Gum Out Of Hair
Anything slippery like cooking oil or peanut butter works well. The only thing to remember is when washing the substance out of your hair, be sure to wash with shampoo that doesn't contain moisturizer in it. This just makes the oil feeling worse.
How To Get Gum Out of Clothing
About a month ago, she got gum all over her brand new Ariel night gown. What is it with her and gum getting all over her? Afraid that I might ruin her new gown with cooking oil, I tried freezing it in the deep freeze first. It didn't work, so I froze the gown for 3 days and still nothing. It was some tough gum. Knowing the gown would be ruined anyway, I decided to rub a little olive oil on it. It didn't take much effort before the gum was gone. I put the gown on a regular cycle in the washing machine and it washed all the oil out. Spotless! I recommend this treatment to any of your gum problems.
