How do I get rid of gum on a car seat?

What’s the best way to get gum off car upholstery? I picked up my brother from school the other day, and I think he must have stuck his old chewing gum on the seat when I wasn't looking.

Answer
Gum can be super difficult to remove, especially when it’s stuck to fabric. But strangely, one of the best ways to get rid of gum on a car seat is with ice.
  • First, place a cube of ice into a plastic bag and put it on top of the gum.
  • Hold the ice there for a few minutes. The gum should start to feel hard, almost frozen.
  • If you’d rather, you can also freeze the gum using compressed air.
  • Once it’s hardened, the gum should come off the seat pretty easily.
After you’ve cleaned up the gum, think about cleaning up your car insurance. Many young people pay too much for their insurance policies, but the Jerry app can help you find the lowest rate out there for you. If you find a new policy that you like, Jerry can sign you up—and help cancel your old policy!
