Remove bubble gum from skin by rubbing it off with baby oil and cotton balls. If no baby oil is available, use some sort of cooking oil or household lubricant.
- Apply baby oil to the skin
Using a cotton ball, apply a generous amount of baby oil to the gum. Be sure to apply it around the gum, directly on the skin.
- Let it sit a few minutes
Allow the oil to soften the gum by allowing it to sit on the area for just a few minutes. The softer the gum, the easier it will be to take off.
- Rub off the gum with a cotton ball or swab
Depending on the amount of gum stuck to the skin, use either a cotton swab or a cotton ball to rub off the gum. It should easily come off without pulling at the skin's hair.
- Allow additional time for the gum to soak
If there is residual gum left on the skin, add more baby oil and wait a few more minutes. Then attempt to wipe it off again.
- Clean off the area with soap and water
Once the gum is completely removed from the skin, wash it with soap and water.
