Your freezer!! Take an ice cube and hold it over the gum until it freezes then crack it off This is the usual advice for gum on carpet. Can't say I've ever had to try it - fortunately - so don't know just how well it works.
Hi all! I'm in n the USA... I have found that buying VM&P Naptha from the house paint or hardware store & dabbing almost any stain on the carpet or floor mats will remove it completely with no damage to carpet fibers. Never use it on Leather or vinyl upholstery as it dries out oils from these.
VM&P Naphtha is what they make "bug & tar remover" out of & it can be used on the paint on the body of the car to safely remove bugs & tar too. In addition to removing stains, it will remove almost any "gummy" goo on/in the car. In the US it is cigarette lighter fuel in the old Zippo style lighters that use a wick & cotton stuffed fuel storage system. It is sold here under the name "Ronson Lighter fluid".
Think of it as "Dry Cleaning Fluid" Just keep dabbing with a white cloth & turning the rag.
