Remove chewing gum, wax, adhesive tape and stickers with this trick

how to remove chewing gum

Double adhesive tape is the most amazing invention of all times: it helps us hang stuff, secure drawers to keep our little ones from opening them, keeps furniture steady and so forth.

However, there’s a time in our lives when we need to remove that adhesive tape and boy, that’s a pain in the bottom (pardon my French!). We’ve all tried the scrubbing, hairdryer tricks and all kinds of techniques to remove adhesive tape (especially the foam double-sided one, right?) with no success.

Fortunately, here, at 9to5hacks, we’re always looking for ways to improve our (and your) lives and, of course, we have an amazing solution for this horrible task.
