Hello there, Bubby!
Well I was wondering if you can help me. I HAVE GUM STUCK IN MY PANTS!!!
I don't know what to do. Last night I tried to take it off and I managed to take some off, but now it looks like a stain of dudu in my pants. The pants have been in my closet for about 2 1/2 months now. They are so cute and I don't want to get rid of them.
Can you PLEASE HELP ME?!

Dear Girl In Need Of Help,
I think the best thing that you can do is either throw out those pants or if you think it is worth keeping them, take them to the cleaners. They have a lot of ways of getting out the stains of gum from your pants. Then they can get out the dudu stain as well.
If they can't, then just throw out the pants and go buy a new pair. You should have taken care of them at the time the "accident" occurred - it may be too late now. Your cleaner will be the final judge.
[Granddaughter Note: A similar question came to Bubby in November of 2003. Check out her advice from back then for more gummy wisdom.]
