I somehow managed to wash my jeans with an old chewed up piece of gum, and discovered the gum stuck to the knee when I took them out of the washing machine. Always the quick thinker, I decided to freeze my jeans. Once frozen, I hit them with a hammer to try to crack the frozen gum off the jeans but to no availl. Any suggestions?
If the gum was stuck to the knee of your jeans for such a long time and then you put them in the freezer -- I would say the jeans owns them, not you -- Go out and get a new pair -- they'll fit better.
