For Safe Gum Removal, Use This Technique

Next time your children come home with
gum in their hair, try this simple technique:

-- Rub a drop of vegetable oil on
the blades of scissors.
-- Trim away as much of the
gum as your can.
-- Apply a teaspoon of creamy peanut
butter to the gum (to break it down).
-- Use your fingers to remove as much
gum as you can.
-- Wash your child's hair.

This trick makes a nice alternative
to cutting the gum from the hair.
