Post RE: Chewing Gum

Hi all,

During cleaning the interior of my car this weekend I come across dry chewing gum stuck within the carpet between passenger seat and the handbrake. In the meantime, I have left as is but cleaned around and the rest of the interior.

I would like to obtain your advice on how to remove this. I have no photos, the chewing is kind of flat, webbed in the carpet.

Thanks in advance,

i'd personally would spray with an APC like Autosmart G101, to let it soften up and break down

Nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

Freeze it if you can (maybe some ice cubes in a small plastic bag sat on it for a while) - this should hopefully allow it to be broken off (works great on stuff you can put in freezer)... You can also get specific sprats for chewing gum which allow it to be removed

Autosmart do a product called Jelsol, this is perfect for removing chewing gum.
