Remove Gum With Coconut Oil!!!

11 Jul

remove gumI had to share this!!!  My daughter got a LOT of gum stuck in her hair.  And she tried to get it out herself without telling me, so you can imagine what a mess it was.  I wished that I had a picture because it was bad.  Coconut oil has become my “cure all” over the past year and I thought it might work better than peanut butter or butter.  I was right!  I wish you could see how bad it was because I got it out in less than two minutes…maybe closer to one.  No tears, no lost hair.  It was awesome.

Lucky for me, I got to test my theory again on the carpet (rug).  Here it is after I pulled up as much gum as I could without anything.

I just put some coconut oil on the gum.I used my nails to pull up the gum.

I wiped some of it with a wipe up and used a little more oil.

Then I used a little bit of Dawn soap and water to get the oil up.  Look how perfect it worked!
