Have you ever gotten up from your seat and didn’t even realize you just sat in gum until some stranger stops you to give you the heads up?!? Of course most people’s first reaction is to get angry because there are just so many careless people in the world, but after that moment has passed, you need to know how to fix this mess before it ruins your clothes. Here is one way to fix it.
