Hi ladies -

so earlier this week, to my surprise I found white gum stuck all over the bottom of my bag and on the strap :sad::crybaby::cry:... I tried picking it off but it's not working.

Anyone have any ideas or experience to removing GUM from a leather bag??

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

You could try putting the bag in the freezer for an hour or so. You may have better luck picking the gum off once it hardens/freezes.

Oh my goodness! So sorry to hear about this. What color is your bag? If it's dark, you might want to try peanut butter, which helps get gum out of hair. Don't ask how I know that, haha, but it might work on your bag!

So sorry to hear that :sad:. I think the best way would be to try and pull out the gum by hand, as much as possible. And then try to gently rub a microfiber cloth with a little water, that should do the trick. Hope it works out for you.. Best wishes
