Gummy Bears


I used to cut up Gummy Bears in High School Spanish Class and make them all mutant. I would bite off an orange head and stick it to a green body and maybe even give it red paws. Maybe it was my early quilting insticts coming out....cutting up pretty fabrics just to sew them back together. Anyway I never dreamed they had such a low melting point. Last week the kids had started a bag but not finished them and I laid them in my seat to take home. Granted my interior is black. Not to mention I folded the seat over to access the back and left it there for a few hours before discovering this.......



This stuff is so tough it even has some of the packaging embedded in it. I let the car get very hot again and have been scraping and scraping. I did find that the petroleum based hand cleaner GoJo is helping some...and my next attempt will be with a citurs cleaner.
Anyone have any experince with melted Gummys? Maybe this is payback for playing with them in Spanish class all those years ago.

Pay back, most assuredly. Never, ever, turn your back (or fold down the seat, for that matter) on a mutant gummy.

try ice...freeze up the goo pile and then scrape

I'm with Karen - rub with an ice cube until they freeze, then use a butter knife to coax them from the upholstery. Good luck.
