How to Remove Gum from Carpet

 As you may be aware there are studies that suggest sugar free gum can be healthy.  When you are looking to curb your appetite and improve your memory, most of you are probably exercising, eating healthier foods and trying to get some sleep.  Those things are all good, but there is a suggestion that chomping on a stick of sugar-free gum may also be of benefit in these areas.  At least that's what some research Wrigleys Science Institute suggests.  Yes I know they make gum so who knows how valid it is, ot was at least reported by CNN so there is some validity I guess.  Apparently this  sort of data is part of a growing body of research that is giving Americans more reasons to pop some gum in their mouths and chew away.

The problem is chewing gum can be a huge pain when it gets smashed into your beautiful carpet. You may worry that gum will never come out of your carpet, but actually there are many different options when it comes to removing this sticky, gummy substance.  Although you may be careful when chewing gum in a carpeted area, accidents happen.

Regardless of how the gum ended up in your carpet, the tricky part is removing it once it has been squished into the carpet fibers. Many think of the task of getting gum out of the carpet as difficult, annoying, or even impossible.
