Can gum be removed from leather?

Removing Gum

The way to remove gum from leather is just as easy as removing it from another fabric: use ice. Ice should be placed on the gum, until it hardens. Afterwards, the gum can be gently peeled away. However, it is important to remember when removing gum from leather, sharp objects will scratch the surface of the leather.
