Step 1: Put ice in plastic bag
Put some ice in the plastic bag and seal it up.
Step 2: Freeze gum
Hold the bag against the gum in your hair. Freezing it will make it easier to get out.
If there's an unopened package of frozen peas or corn in the freezer, you can try using that instead of ice.
Step 3: Chip away gum
When the gum is good and hard, try gently pulling at it. If it won't come away without breaking your hair, it's time to try another tactic.
Step 4: Wet with olive oil or peanut butter
Pour a little olive oil over the gummy hair, holding a washcloth underneath it to catch any overflow. Or smear a little peanut butter in your hair where the gum is stuck. The idea is that the oil will make the gum slippery.
Don't just dab the oil or peanut butter onto your hair -- knead it into the gum with your fingers or a washcloth.
Step 5: Use fingers or comb
Use your fingers or the comb to gently tease out the -- hopefully -- loosened bits of gum.
Step 6: Wash hair
Now hit the shower -- you'll probably need to shampoo a few times to get all that gunk out. And next time, tie your hair out of your face before you blow the world's biggest bubble!
Did You Know?
Kids in North America spend about half a billion dollars on bubble gum each year.
