How to Remove Gum From Leather

Save

Whether it's your couch, shoe, jacket or purse, leather is the last place you would want a piece of gum. But don't send that leather to the cleaner just yet. Try these steps to remove gum from your leather first.

Things You'll Need

  • Dish soap and water
  • Peanut butter or vegetable oil
  • Scrape off any excess gum carefully with a credit card, plastic scraper or your fingernails.

  • Mix dish soap and water, using enough soap to create lots of suds. Dampen a soft cloth with the mixture and wipe the leather.

  • Wipe again with clean water and then with a dry cloth. If the gum is gone, stop here and follow up with a leather conditioner.

  • Dip a clean cloth in peanut butter or vegetable oil and rub it onto the spot. Let stand for 1 minute.

  • Use another clean cloth to wipe away the peanut butter or oil. The gum will be gone, with no damage to your leather.
