Hi all,

I recently got some spruce gum on my felt cowboy hat. Anyone know how to
clean it off?

If you really like the hat, you might want to contact this guy via phone or
e-mail:

An article about him:

You might also contact a few local dry cleaners. One might light up and
sound like he/she knows exactly what to do. But, if you sense any guessing,
run away quick.

Terpentine will dissolve it, but that mad drive some of the gum deeper
into the felt fibers. Worth a try if the hat is otherwise
unuseable.-Jitney

Thanks for the pointers guys. I tried acetone free nail polish remover on
an old towel then dabbed the gum right off.
