Just sat on a chewing gum. With a Gieves & Hawkes suit. - Page 2

A specialist over the phone just told me that the freezing method had to be avoided, it doesn't work perfectly, etc. They say it's easy to remove that with a simple dry cleaning...?

Also, how much time can I wait before it becomes impossible to handle? I still hesitate about what do to, and right now I can't show the damage to a professional to have his opinion (it's late, everything is closed).

Do not mess around with this yourself. Be patient and send it to a top dry cleaner.

Yeah, I really just do not think the risk is worth it for a suit of that caliber. The downside here is huge.

If you could afford the $5k G&H suit, you can probably afford to have it properly cleaned.

Yes, yes. I was simply unable to see a specialist today, and I thought it was good to do something while the gum is still "fresh". But what I can do on my own (I tried to apply some advice from here) is either too slow or too risky.

Go for a $60 top-notch traditional cleaning tomorrow, I guess.
