First of all, the method you choose may depend on the conditions you are facing. For example, if the gum has just stuck to the carpet, you may need to freeze it and scrape it off.

You can do this by placing a plastic bag filled with ice on top of fresh gum, leaving it there for about 15 minutes until the gums harden, then scrape them off with a suitable scraper such as a blunt dinner knife or spatula.

There are many household solvents and detergents that have been used successfully to get jobs done. However, if you're not too careful, you can easily damage your carpet and leave dirt that will come back after taking shortcuts.

My recommendation is to go to a storefront to ask about natural organic solvents that contain d-limonene. They are usually extracted from citrus essential oils and can be available as a solution or gel. Now all you have to do is apply the gel to the gum deposit. Then use a sharp tool to drill holes or lines in the gums to allow the gel to move.
