The next time you discover an errant wad of chewing gum stuck in to your carpet (or worse, to the back of your jeans), fret not. First, apply a succession of ice cubes directly to the gum to freeze it. "You want the gum to be nice and hard," Weiss says. Then, use a butter knife or metal spatula to tease it out – it should scrape it right off. If any stray strands (or dye) remain, then mix some Dawn dish soap with water and gently blot the spot until it releases and comes out.
