A blow dryer, a plastic knife, a scraper, a Ziploc bag, plastic and some BenGay.
But make sure to be gentle-handed while coaxing off the gooey mess from the clothing.
Yes, BenGay is the most potent and supported rub that allows for the removal of gum out of your clothes. International Gum Chewing Association even recommends it.
The Methyl Salicylate present in it will easily evaporate the gum base as you rub onto the material till it doesn't last as sticky further. It will form droplets just like beads.
Make sure all of them get removed, and plastic will help on discarding the lftover particles.
While doing this method, be careful!
