Getting gum on your jeans/pants usually seems like an enormous disaster; however, there is an easy and effective way to remove it. You just need an iron and a page of a newspaper. Place the paper over the gum spot; heat the iron properly; place the iron on the newspaper, making sure the gum stain is beneath it; take the iron and paper off the spot and make sure all the gum is gone. If not, treat it again. This technique is harmless for your clothes. Just keep in mind the fact that if you leave the iron on the paper for more than 10 seconds it will burn through it and probably damage both your appliance and clothing.
