    DH and I went to Bass Pro and he bought some Peach Rings. We ate a few and he left the bag, out of sight, in my glovebox. Anyway, as you can imagine the rings melted all over. :rolleyes1 So I have this sticky mess in my glovebox and it's time to clean it out. 3 years later.

    I tried Goo Gone and it didn't touch it. Now I'm freezing it with a bag of ice, but I can't seem to get it cold enough in all parts. Any other ideas?

    Hand Kory a small chisle and hammer and tell him have at it. ;)

    The ice thing may be the best way to go, it'll just be a slow process of freezing a small section at a time.

    And by the way, just look at how big the girls have gotten. Those are two beautiful little girls!

    Take a razor blade and try to slice out little chunks. I'm assuming it's a solid rock by now.

    If it's still sticky, try wadding paper towels on top and heating it with a blow dryer. It'll be slow work either way.

    You might be able to freeze it better with air in a can. Then you could scrape it out.

    It's already been there 3 years....why bother now? :rotfl:

    Reminds me of a trip I went on with my boys. I'd bought them both gummy bears for treats in the car. We'd stopped at a rest stop, and looked in the back seat, and the stupid things were EVERYWHERE. I'm yelling at them, flinging them out of the car...."I. Will. Never. Buy. You. Gummy. Bears. Again!!" then we went into the rest stop.

    Anyway, we got back, and my sons start laughing, and pointing at the car next to ours. Evidently in my flinging, many of the gummy bears had stuck on the car parked next to ours. :scared: Those things are evil!!
