To get gum out of carpet, start by putting several ice cubes in a Ziploc bag. Seal the bag and place it over the gum. After about 10 minutes, the gum hardens. Carefully break it out of the carpet.
Another way to get gum out of carpet is to carefully heat it and then lay a plastic bag over it. Pull up the warm gum when it sticks to the bag. To remove gum with spot remover, rub a small amount of spot remover into the area with a brush. This breaks up the gum and makes it easy to vacuum or blot up.
