If we’re speaking about hemp, cotton, or linen clothes, you can use distilled turpentine, a vegetable volatile and colorless solvent, extracted from pine buds through distillation to remove resin stains. If the stain is on woolen clothes, first powder it with talc powder, then rub it with a cloth soaked in a solution of equal parts of distilled turpentine and 90-degree alcohol. If the fabric is delicate, use a piece of cloth soaked in 90-degree alcohol to gently dab the stain several times (do not rub).

To remove glue stains from clothes, pad the stain with nail polish. Nail polish naturally dissolves glue and then you can wash your clothes normally. Similar to glue stains, chewing gum stains can also be removed at home. First, harden the gum stain by rubbing it with a plastic bag filled with ice cubes. Scrape the gum with a spoon or spatula. If there are still traces of gum left, remove them with a solvent.
