Went to see Ant n Dec on Saturday - was having the most amazing time till I realised that the little brat lovely little boy sat behind me had spat his chewing him out on my seat! It's now all over the back of my favourite top confusedconfusedhmmhmm

I've heard ice is good? But how would I do it?? Really really hope it comes out!

Thanks!

Yep.Freeze it.

The whole top?? Will it be ok?? How long should I put it in freezer for?? I'm scared!!!!!

Whole thing in the freezer (in a plastic bag if you like). Overnight should do it, although if you're in a rush it probably won't take that long.

Sticky Stuff Remover from Lakeland should do the trick:

Heat it up, then scrape it off. Use boiling water, steam from a kettle etc

DH often sits on chewing gum people have left stuck on seats on the train. Chewing gum on your only suit angry But dry cleaners have always got it out smile
