It's stuck!

Summer is here, and of course there are tons of items that seem to get stuck on everything. Ever had one of those times when you are in a parking lot, and a piece of gum gets stuck on your shoe? Here are some tips on how to get some of those items unstuck.

Gum On The Shoe

Peanut butter will help with this problem. If you rub it on the area, the oil in the peanut butter detaches the chewy goo. But who wants to do this? It's a little messy. An easier way to do this is wrapping the shoe in plastic, and then place it in the freezer. After a half hour, you can remove the shoe, and scrape off the gum.

The Label

We've all bought that perfect picture frame, and then realized that the label hasn't come off the way we planned. There is glue gum everywhere. The simple solution for this one, is WD-40. First you sock the glass in warm dish water for about fifteen minutes. Then you add your WD-40. Let it sit for a moment, and the sticky will wipe off almost instantly.

Bug Guts

Yep, bugs seem to just be drawn to the grill of your car in the summer. And running through the local car wash doesn't always seem to get the whole mess does it? Run to the hardware store and pick up some mineral spirits. Take a soft cloth and rub it over the area of your car. It's pretty simple. After the bug goo is removed, wash the area with a mild detergent, and wax it.

So hopefully these simple tricks will help you out this summer.
