this handy dandy tip is brought to you by my dear spouse...
because I just could not get to his pants to get the gum out soon enough...he took the matter into his own hands.
Did you know that warm apple cider vinegar takes gum out of fabric? Yes it does. Don't know if it works on children's hair. I just used scissors for that!
Hope that you don't have to actually use this tip! Just file it away in the back of your mind for that poor unfortunate soul he may need it. And I hope that its not because your child was the gum offender!
