After repeatedly asking my wife not to give the boys gum in the car, there is now a ground in wad of gum about the size of a nickel.

:mad:

Does anyone know any tricks to getting this out besides cutting cutting it out? :dunno:

I don't have any Goo Gone at the house, but I'll try the ice cubes, and if that doesn't work then the vegetable oil. If those fail, I guess I'm making a trip to Home Depot.

Thanks for the quick reply Alex!

The vegetable oil did the trick

Glad it worked. I had that problem in a previous car. Finally had to resort to the can of Whoop A$$. It aint too good with gum, but it does make you feel better.

Believe me..I've thought about opening a can of Whoop A$$, but as is usually the case, I'd just be wasting my time. No matter how many times, or how nice I ask, she still continues to let the kids eat ANYTHING they want in the car. That's why 99.9 % of the time she drives the 4Runner.

:rolleyes:

Why is it that wives always have to have a dang cup of coffee in the car?
