Washed my pants with gum in the pocket.....

mrmichaeljmooreSeptember 3, 2008

I washed and dryed a pair of crago pants with a stick of gum in the pocket....

Now the pocket is a sticky mess....

Any suggestions or tips on getting the gum out???

I assume you mean put them in the freezer, then just scrape off the gum??

Lestoil will remove gum, just rub some in the sticky area.

To remove Lestoil odor from garment.

1. Rewash item with detergent.
2. During first rinse add 1 cup of Baking Soda and 1/2 to 3/4 cup of vinagar.
3. Use your favorite Fabric Softerner.
