    Gross!! I have just got home and realised that some horrible child has spat out his/her chewing gum which has landed INSIDE my shoe - and my brand new trousers have stuck to it.

    Now I have speg on my shoe, trousers and sock. I know in the past people have said to put stuff in the freezer, but this is the first time I have worn these - grrr.

    Any suggestions please?

    Buy new shoes.
    Have trousers professionally dry-cleaned.
    Send bills for both to parents of child.

    Do I want to know just exactly how they managed to get it in your shoes....had you taken them off for some reason?

    Ha ha - no (tee hee).

    They are a sort of sandally mule thing and the speggly gum went down the back of my heel - I didn't realise till I got home.

    Actually these aren't Hotters - Clarks I think.
     

  6. Put the items in the freezer so that the gum hardens, and then it will come off
