While parked outside, someone found it amusing to spread an entire wad of chewing gum all over the headlight of my Punto. I figured window cleaner wasn't really going to work but tried it out anyway. It just makes it worse. I googled it and found a site that suggested I try Zippo fluid. Zippo fluid works wonders. The headlight shows no sign of ever having any chewing gum on it. I'm glad it was on the headlight and not the paint. Given that this will probably not be a one off situation and I cannot completely rule out some idiot sticking his/her gum on the car, anyone know how to remove gum from a painted surface? Zippo fluid is Naphtha, same stuff they use in dry cleaning clothes. I doubt it would be safe for painted surfaces. Some sites suggest using ice to completely freeze off the gum and it'll just crumble out. Any suggestions/alternatives?
