How do you get gum off Lululemon pants?
First try dawn dish soap/oxy clean. You definitely don’t want any oil based cleaner as it could ruin the pant. I’d second freezing the pants for a couple hours and using a blunt knife to scrape off as much gum as you can. After that, dish soap + a toothbrush, be gentle!
How do you get dried gum out of clothes?
- Apply liquid laundry detergent all over the chewing gum and the area around it.

- Scrape away the gum with a blunt knife and use more liquid if you have to.
- Wash the garment as usual after all the gum is out.
