Step Three

After the time necessary for the gum to harden, take out the bag that you previously put in the freezer and remove the garment from inside.

Take a plastic or wooden spatula and swirl the gum to remove it. The spatula does not have to be made of ice, nor do you use a knife to remove the gum because you can damage the garment.

When you have removed all the gum's remains that you had in the garment, wash it and dry it in the open air to remove any marks that may have remained.
