Put one ice cube in a resealable sandwich bag, and seal the bag tightly. This keeps water off the carpet.
Hold the ice cube in the bag on the gum for 5 minutes or until the chewing gum is frozen hard.
As soon as the gum is frozen, take a butter knife, and gently scrape the gum away from the carpet fibers. Discard the gum.
Saturate the area where the gum was located with a gentle gel solvent.
Rub the carpet with a soft towel to remove any remaining bits of gum.
Wet another soft cloth with soapy water, and wring it out well. Rub the carpet to remove the applied solvent.
Press on the carpet with a clean, dry towel to remove the moisture. Repeat until the area is mostly dry.
