Chewing Gum Stain Solutions

HOW TO REMOVE CHEWING GUM STAINS

 

 

  1. Rub ice over the gum stain to make it hard, and then carefully scrape it off with a brush.
  2. Remove excess chewing gum.
  3. Mix Axo with water and soak stained shirt from 30 minutes or up to 6 hours. This helps loosen the chewing gum.
  4. Launder as usual with your favorite detergent either by hand or washing machine, depending on the fabric care instructions found on the garment’s tag.
  5. Stain should be treated as fresh as possible. Repeat as necessary.

 

On Carpet / Rug

  1. Remove excess stain.
  2. Apply AXO solution to the stain, and let it stand for about 1 hour.
  3. Blot the area with cloth or towel. When blotting your carpet with a towel or cloth, push down on the towel with your hand, and twist your wrist in a clockwise motion before lifting the cloth up again and repeating the motion. Most carpet fibers are twisted in a clockwise direction, and blotting in this manner will remove stains without causing fuzziness in the carpet.
  4. For small rug, you may wash as usual with your favorite detergent by hand or washing machine.
  5. For carpet, you may sponge with water and blot dry to remove the solution.

 

On Sofa / Upholstery

  1. Remove excess stain.
  2. Pour AXO on a clean sponge.
  3. Dab at the stain, working from the outside of the stain toward the center.
  4. Rinse out the sponge and add more Axo as the stain transfers to the sponge.
  5. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until the stain disappears.
  6. Press clean towels against the area of your mattress that was cleaned. Blot up as much liquid for faster drying.
  7. Air dry your (sofa, mattress). Open a window, if possible, or turn on a fan to speed up the drying process.
