How to Remove Chewing Gum Stains


Follow these steps to remove chewing gum stains from Natural Fur and Synthetic Fur:

  • Take care not to remove the fur when removing the gum.
  • Freeze to harden the remainder and gently rub it with a dry sponge or brush to remove the remaining gum.
  • Very careful treatment with spot remover wipes or disposable cloths, works well.
  • Another effective treatment is to dampen a sponge or cloth in the suds of a mild detergent and wipe in the direction of the nap to remove any sugary residue.
  • Take care not to over-wet the pelt or backing. Allow to air dry.
