DS1 keeps getting hold of the stuff at school and it then dropping it and it gets trodden into the carpet argggg!! I've picked as much of it out as I can but there is still a bit left. I will be frisking the dear child at the door from now on grin

not good - we had to resort to cutting little bits out of the carpet and not getting new till they were much older and past the messy stages!

he is 9 and should know better but I think it is one of those "things" at school as his mate brought some round the other day

have got a vague idea that ice works (or does it work on chewing gum? can't remember blush.
think if you make the blu tack cold enough it should be easier to remove...
