How can I remove gum from carpet?

Sometimes, chewing gum inevitably gets on the carpet. How do I get it back off?

I've tried using ice to harden the gum, and lifting it off, but it didn't freeze down far enough.

It depends a bit on the type of carpet you have, but for 'non-fluffy' carpets I can recommend using ice-spray to freeze the gum. It gets porous and you can vacuum it off easily. I have not tested this on long fibre carpets.

You should be able to get the spray at an apothecary or the right convenience store

Use a blow drier to start softening the gum. Use a scoop to scoop up the gum. If the gub is stubborn, keep on heating it. Eventually it will be removed.
