As I say on my Web page, JillMarie's Stuff, these are tips that have either been emailed to me, or that I have found on the internet. I have not tried all of them and cannot guarantee their success. If you do try one and it works, or if you have another one that works for you, let me know.
Gum dried onto carpet: Place a bowl of ice over the gum and let sit till the gum becomes hard, take a hammer and hit the gum. It should break apart and come off the carpet. If that doesn't work, try dry cleaners solvent, pour a small amount onto a rag and rub over the gum, it should come right out of the carpet.
