gum HATES hot vinegar

Q: What do you do when you sit in gum whilst wearing a beloved pair of jeans, have to leave the gum there for hours letting it melt into every possible denim fiber, throw the jeans in the freezer in a panic, and then decide to face the issue a week later?

A: You simply heat up some vinegar and brush away the chicle with a toothbrush. It will come off so easily you'll feel like you're filming an infomercial. Please spread the word: this could change peoples lives!!

Well I think vinegar should pay you for this post.

Thanks for the info. With Chasey I do believe this will be a problem soon enough!

Think it will work on gum that the hubby left in the pocket of his scrubs that subsequently went through the washer AND dryer and is now a solidified mass of gum + wrapper + scrub pocket?
