Default Chewing Gum stain on seat

Hi
Does anybody have any solution to remove old chewing gum stain from the seats ? Have tried shampoo, with a old tooth brush but no luck ?

try some alcohol or petrol.. but careful, test on a small area then if it works, let it dry make sure no stain mark then go ahead and apply fully.. or try getting a dry foam cleaning done by service center..

Put an ice bag over the stain to freeze it and make it hard. scrape whatever you can of using an old plastic credit card or similar. Use alcohol, peol to remain remaining

You can use petrol...that will surely work.But the easiest is using your deodorant...if its non powder based.
