How do I get a gum stain out of my pants?

Before the inevitable title change can somebody please help me? I washed my slacks yesterday and left a pack of gum in the pocket. I now have one pair with a pocket full stickiness I cannot get out and another pair where a piece of the gum attached itself to the leg of the pants. I have been able to remove the gum but cannot get rid of the sticky residue. Any suggestions?

Thanks

This should be good.

Ok, now to be serious, peanutbutter does wonders for breaking down the gum. Put some on the gum and let it sit over night, then try scrapping it out with some very hot water.

Next thread will be "Okay, how do I get peanut butter out of my pants"





ps - I've heard both the ice and peanut butter methods.

Creamy or chunky? I may try this on the pocket. Looks like I may have finally rid myself of the stain on the leg after applying stain remover, scrubbing stain, wash, repeat about 3 times.

I was more worried about the one on the leg that was visible and it is gone now. If I don't get it completely out of the pocket I guess I can live with that.
Q: Eww, why is your pocket sticky?
A: I was just happy to see you.

I've always found that tossing the jeans in a fire worked for getting rid of the gum. Of course, you also lose the pants, but you have to cut your losses somewhere. Right??

But that would mean a move to the Adult forum as well.
