  • Remove chewing gum from concrete – Pour white distilled vinegar over the spot. Allow the vinegar to soak for a couple of minutes and scrub vigorously with a brush to get rid of the gum that has seeped into the pores of the concrete. Optionally, you could use a commercial “goo” removal solution, instead of the vinegar.
  • Remove chewing gum from asphalt – Pouring water over the gum and scouring it with an abrasive scouring powder might also additionally provide sufficient friction to get rid of the chewing gum. A wire brush can be useful to scrub the area. If the gum has penetrated the concrete, cool the gum with an ice cube to avoid a sticky mess.
  • Remove chewing gum from brick – Smear a bit of peanut butter into the nooks and crannies of the brick, in which the chewing gum is stuck. Wait approximately 10 mins for the peanut butter to take effect–it’s going to break down the chewing gum. Wipe away the peanut butter and sprinkle sand over the brick.
  • Remove chewing gum from laminate floor – Take a pack of ice and place it exactly on the affected area. Let the ice sit on the sticky area for at least 10 minutes. The ice will harden the chewing gum so it can be easily removed. This trick works well on most flat, non-porous surfaces around the house.
  • Remove chewing gum from carpets –  Take WD-40 and spray a generous amount of it onto the gum, and let the spray sit in the chewing gum stain for few seconds, (sometimes works instantly) then remove the stain with a fingernail brush.
