Works Like a Charm

I posted this photo on my social media Friday night because I felt like such a ROCKSTAR!  No, I wasn't eating peanut butter in the bath. I was getting gum out of Thomas' hair. He's obsessed with gum right now and managed to get an entire piece stuck just above his ear. So, into the bath he went! The process requires a little more than just rubbing peanut butter on the gum, so I thought today I would share what I did in case you are ever faced with this sticky mess!
I put T in the bath and got his hair wet. Then I took about a tablespoon of peanut butter and rubbed it into the gum.  The oil is supposed to help loosen it.  Pretty instantly I saw it working.  I took a small brush and then started to carefully brush the gum away from his scalp.  He didn't fuss too much so I can only assume the peanut butter helps.  As the gum started to move away from his head and into his hair, I used a dry facecloth to start to pull it out of his hair.  It took a few times of repeating this process until the gum came out, but it did! Then I washed his hair and it was done!
Again, I felt like a rockstar!
