How do I remove gum stuck to my clothes?

Removing Gum

Place fabric with gum in the freezer for several hours, making the gum hard and brittle. Gently tap on the gum with a hammer. Be careful not to damage the fabric fiber. Dry cleaning solvent may dissolve any remaining pieces. Test solvent in a small area for discoloration first.
