Chewing gum stains can be very tough stains to take out from clothes. So to remove them effectively, they need pre-treatment. As it’s not always clear how to remove chewing gum stains, using Ariel powder is one of the most effective solution. So follow the instructions below and get rid of those pesky chewing gum stains in the 1st go.
Somehow, chewing gum always seems to end up somewhere it’s not meant to be. And while chewing that gum keeps it nice and chewy, afterwards it gets sticky and hard.
It used to be said that chewing gum stains could ruin your clothes forever. Luckily, Ariel knows that’s just not the case. Watch our step by step guide on how to get rid of chewing gum stains from clothing, or read the instructions below.
Removing chewing gum stains
Freeze the gum
The first thing to do is apply cold. When frozen, you can remove chewing gum easily, so stick your garment in the freezer or hold an ice cube onto it for 30 seconds or more.
Once the gum is hard, just peel it off by hand.
Prepare a Soaking Solution
If a mark has been left after you peel off the gum, you’ll need to pre-treat the chewing gum stained garment. Otherwise, skip to step 6. Fill a sink or bucket with warm water and add half a scoop of Ariel Washing Powder. Mix the solution by hand until the detergent is completely dissolved.
Prepare a Soaking Solution
Add your chewing gum stained garments to the solution and leave to soak for an hour. If the stained garment keeps floating to the top, place a white towel on top of it to keep it fully immersed in the soaking solution.
Preparing for wash
Gently wring out the excess water before adding it to your wash with similar items.
Add detergent based on the instructions on your pack.
Load your garment into the washing machine with other, similar items and wash on your usual cycle, at the highest temperature shown on the care label.
Then, when the wash cycle is over, simply remove the items and you’re ready to go.
