How do I get gum off car floor mats?

What's the best way to get gum off floor mats? My daughter tried to spit her gum out the window on a road trip. I wasn't too pleased when I discovered she missed.

“Although you might think heat is the best way to get gum off car floor mats, cold works better.
Here’s what you should do:
  • Remove the floor mat from the car.
  • Spray the gum with a can of compressed air, which will make the gum rock hard.
  • Use tweezers or a fork to remove it.
  • Vacuum away any gum bits that remain.
The next time you’re on a road trip, consider implementing a no gum policy! And if you’re at all concerned about your car breaking down, try a roadside assistance membership with Jerry. Jerry’s roadside assistance partner, Urgently, protects you with their nationwide network of 55,000+ service providers for $50 a year.”
