    help? if anyone can recommend how to remove gum on wet okole? was cleaning my interior and found a nice green piece of gum stuck to my back seat covers... my niece might have spit it out w/o me catching her :(. I've tried using the shampoo that comes with it but it just makes it smell nice lol it does not remove any of it.

    fellow hawaii guy here. I've heard using ice works to get if out of carpet. Rub it with ice cubes to get it hard and try to scrape as much of it off as you can.

    Either ice it, let freeze and scrape away or put a little bit of peanut butter on it let sit for a few minutes and pull up the gum then some shout or other carpet cleaner to fully remove the pb.

    I got a big ole gob stuck on my floor mats a few months ago. I googled solutions and came up with one that suggested WD-40. It worked like a charm. No hint of gum left, was like it never happened. Wasn't a drawn out process, just sprayed it on, let it set a couple of minutes and picked it right out....

    Aluminum foil like the kind you cook with...rub it over the gum. Took it out of my carpet with no problem.
