Default some a-hole put gum on my car

how do I get it off. they smeared it in pretty good and I washed the car yesterday but never had a chance to wax it.

What's the best way to remove this? I tried using my thumb, and a cloth but it only moves the crap around.

I'd try Goo Gone---its used to take adhesive off of cars when the emblems are removed so IDK why it wouldnt work for gum...

You may be able to freeze with an upside down can of dusting spray and pick most of it off first. Then hit it with Goo-gone.

Goo gone or bug and tar remover. Both work well for debadging so it should work for gum...hopefully.

Goo gone works well, but WD-40 works also. Used it many times to remove gum, tar, grease, bumper stickers, etc.

I had so me gum on my boot once which ended up on the peg of my 600RR and I used the upside down can of computer cleaner to freeze and chip it off. Then used goo gone for the little bit that was left.
