Removing Gum From Leather

Gum, Candies & Foods

LeatherCareUSA can remove gum, candies and other food stains from leather or suede garments and accessories. There are many cleaning products that we can use on leather that are unfortunately not for consumer use or handling. In most cases, these types of stains can be removed without an adverse effect on the leather. However, if you try home remedies, you may diminish our chances of removing these stains.

There are home remedies that consumers can find on the internet that will produce 'satisfactory' results. We caution you when using these and DIY tips. The blogs and videos that can be found may have good advice, but you have to make sure that what you are applying to your garment will not produce unwanted results like color loss or rings.


Always test a product or technique before using it. Also, always use the product sparingly too to prevent highly noticeable damage. You can always apply more product, but you may not be able to remove it. 

We offer live chat service available on the bottom right corner widget, or feel free to call us at 859.739.0483 or email picture to us at for a free evaluation. We can try and offer advice for your product's care and hopefully avoid home remedy disasters.
