Tips for getting gum out of car seats
If you have ever tried to remove gum from a car seat, you know that it can be a frustrating task. Here are some tips for getting gum out of car seats:
1. Use a paper towel to rub the gum off the surface. The friction will help break down the gum and make it easier to remove.
2. If the gum is stuck to the fabric, try using a knife to cut around it. Then use your fingers to pull the gum off the fabric.
3. If none of these methods work, try boiling water and pouring it over the gum. Let it sit for a few minutes before trying to remove the gum.
