How To Remove Chewing Gum Stains From Silk
Silk generally should be dry cleaned. Always follow garment label instructions when pretreating and laundering your clothes. For colored garments, test an inside seam for colorfastness.
If the garment is washable, apply ice to chewing gum to harden, scrape with a dull knife. Saturate with Purex® Complete with Zout® detergent. Then wash with Purex® detergent. Avoid cleaning silk with laundry products containing enzymes. If dry clean only, take it to the dry cleaner for stain removal.
