After a somewhat stressful day, I had a long drive home (in a good way – it was calming, not frustrating), and I was already to relax for the evening until I moved to get out of the car. That’s when I realized I must have stepped in gum in the garage downtown, because my left shoe was practically glued to the rubber floor mat. Gross gross gross ew EW.
I slipped my shoe off and left it on the front porch, went inside, and googled how to get rid of gum. No time to waste! It has been a LONG time since I had to figure that out. WD-40 worked like a charm on my floor mat (Let it sit for a minute or two, then use a paper towel to wipe it away. Repeat as needed. I only had to do it twice.), but I’m still waiting to see how my shoe remedy will work. I wrapped it in a plastic bag, pressing the plastic into the gum, and put it in the freezer. Supposedly, the gum will come off with the plastic bag. We’ll see.
To add insult to injury, while I was outside cleaning my floor mat, I got three (THREE!) mosquito bites. Because mosquitoes are the devil.
Update: The plastic bag thing didn’t work at all. Stupid gum.
