Removing gum

Help – I think I’ve ruined my favourite jeans because I sat in chewing gum!

Don’t panic – you should be able to salvage them. Remove as much of the gum as possible with a knife, then hold an ice-cube to the stain until it hardens. You should then be able to scrape off the remainder. Finally, sponge the area with hot water.
