    Grrrrrr.........just brought a load of laundry upstairs only to discover that, apparently, someone left some bubble gum in their pocket or something. Several items have bubble gum on it. Can anything be saved or should I just pitch it all? :confused: :sad2:

    Put items in separate plastic bags in the freezer, the gum should peel off when completely frozen.

    Will these ideas work (hopefully) even if it's been washed and dried??

    Not likely after being dried, but it's worth trying.

    Carbona stain removers in the laundry aisle - they come in teeny yellow bottles and there is one to remove glue/gum - I got a giant wad of gum out of DH's wide wale cords and you can't even tell!
