How to Remove Gum From Your Carpets or Upholstery
Chewing gum is terrifically sticky and is difficult to remove. This is all the more if it has remained unnoticed for a while and has been stepped on, crushing the gum into the fabric fibers.
Good News is that removing the gum embedded in the carpet and upholstery is actually rather simple if done with proper technique.
Step 1 – Remove as much gum as you can with your fingers. Don’t worry of you can’t get it all as you are trying to get rid of the bid, easy parts.
Step 2 – Take an ice cube or a bowl of cold water and place it on the small gummy spot now. Leave it there for a few minutes to harden the remaining gum.
Step 3 – Take butter knife and scrape the hardened gum, most should easily come off. Reapply ice as needed to get the gum colder and repeat as many times as needed to remove all the gum.
Step 4 – Should you need to do the same thing to another garment such as a pillow case, another option is to place the item in a plastic bag and leaving it in the freezer for a couple hours which will give you the same result and prevent you from getting cold fingers!
Many solutions exist for keeping your mattress clean and healthy.
Start with vacuuming it on a regular basis as you would your carpet. You may use upholstery cleaner since this will remove dust mites and protect the sensitive surfaces.
Cleaning with citrus type cleaners will assist removing odor. Bloodstains should be blotted. Rub in meat tenderizer to remove proteins and rinse after. Adding salt to water will usually remove fresh bloodstains. Many people have experiences success with baking soda and cold water. Should you apply any of these options, be sure to let sit for 30 minutes.
Never Forget – this is something that should be done at least once a year!
