Scrape off and dispose of any loose gum, being careful not to harm the leather.
Fold the leather back so that only the affected area is visible. Avoid treating any areas not affected by the chewing gum.
Pour warm water and detergent into a bowl. Swish the water and detergent around to create soap suds.
Gather a small amount of the suds sitting on top of the water, and apply it to the chewing gum on the leather.
Use the sponge to scrub the suds into the chewing gum and affected leather. Continue to scrub until all the chewing gum is removed.
Wipe the leather with a clean cloth, and allow the leather to air dry.
Rub leather cleaner onto the affected area to restore suppleness to the leather.
