I had to share this!!! My daughter got a LOT of gum stuck in her hair. And she tried to get it out herself without telling me, so you can imagine what a mess it was. I wished that I had a picture because it was bad. Coconut oil has become my “cure all” over the past year and I thought it might work better than peanut butter or butter. I was right! I wish you could see how bad it was because I got it out in less than two minutes…maybe closer to one. No tears, no lost hair. It was awesome.
Lucky for me, I got to test my theory again on the carpet (rug). Here it is after I pulled up as much gum as I could without anything.
I just put some coconut oil on the gum.I used my nails to pull up the gum.
I wiped some of it with a wipe up and used a little more oil.
Then I used a little bit of Dawn soap and water to get the oil up. Look how perfect it worked!
It was about two minutes!! Hope you find this tip useful. I thought it genius (If I may say so myself)!
