Removing Chewing Gum from Fabric
Spray the stain with a pre-wash spray. Let it set for five or ten
minutes. Saturate the stain again with the pre-wash spray, rubbing the
gummed area to dissolve the gum. Work some laundry detergent into the
stain, rinse it well with hot water. Hold the stained area under the
faucet so the gummy residue can be rinsed off.

If the gum remains, repeat the process. If not, launder the item using a bleach that is safe for that fabric.
If the fabric is non-washable…
To remove gum stains from non washable items, you should sponge the
stained area with a cleaning fluid such as Energine or Renuzit or
Carbona. You can usually get these products in drug stores or houseware
Test an area first…
Always test cleaning fluid in a place that doesn't show. If the fluid
doesn't seem to hurt the fabric, you can use it. Place the stained side
of the fabric face down on a clean paper towel. Sponge the back of the
stain with cleaning fluid. If the paper towel doesn't absorb the gum,
tap the back of the stained area with a spoon. The sturdier the fabric
the harder you can tap. Repeat the process until the stain is gone.
For valuable, dry-clean-only items, have the stain removed professional. Be sure to point the stain out to the cleaners.
