I just got gum on my couch and I sat on it without realizing it. It's all smushed in. I tried ice, but that didn't really work. Any ideas?? Thanks so much!!

This is a tuffy. To get the gum out the best thing is some kind of grease...but that will stain your couch. What kind of fabric is it? You have a few options:



a) Use a grease of some sort to try to get the gum out then treat the resulting stain.

b) Find a marker the same color as the couch and color over the gum.

c) Flip over the couch cushion.



Personally, I vote for C. But that's just me. Good luck!

Peanut butter, and mayo are the only things I can think of. If you have a removable cover, you can stick it in the freezer, let the gum freeze, then try to peel it off.
