Default Gum in carpet floor mat

Have dark carpet floor mats in a 535. Noticed gum smeared into floor mat in one small spot. Hoping for a product suggestion that can help remove the gum and not remove carpet color.
Thanks in advance.

Hey @ plowery21

Did you try to remove the gum from your mats using ice? I've heard this works great.

Keep the ice over the gum for 15-20 min. and then just scrape it off, repeat as necessary.

Ice works wonders. I'd give it a shot too.
