GUM IN HAIR: Non stick Cooking Spray (such as Pam) One way you can remove gum from hair is to spray it with a non-stick cooking spray such as Pam. A quick spritz worked into the gum will loosen it enough to be gently combed out. OR: Peanut Butter Try rubbing a dollop of peanut butter into the chewing gum – work it in well – then try combing the gum out. The oil in the peanut butter is great for dissolving the chewing gum.
NEW BAKING TRICK: When you need softened butter - grate the butter while it is still hard, then mix with other ingredients as normal. It will soften quickly and perfectly and give an even dispersal of butter throughout the dough.
