Lemon EO to the Rescue


Did you know Lemon EO will remove gum from any surface?

Life with 3 kids is messy. And sticky. Someone got gum on their brand new shirt and didn't bother to tell anyone. I discovered it after it had already been washed and dried. I was pretty irritated, but then I remembered...there's an oil for that! 

Citrus oils (particularly Lemon) are excellent for removing sticky or greasy messes. I put a couple drops right on the gum and scraped it off easily with my fingernail. Then I used dish soap to remove the oil and tossed it in the wash. It looks as good as new!

Avoid the scissors and tears if gum gets in hair by doing the same thing.
