    Default Chewing gum

    Just stepped on chewing gum spat inside the lift by some irresponsible person this morning . Really have a hard time cleaning the shoe.
    I think government should launch a program on teach these irresponsible persons on disposure properly, or tax the chewing gum company for cleaning involve, or best make them do community work and clean up their own mess

    sorry, not sure why it emerge as two threads???

    Chewing gum was banned last time, but due to the WTO agreement, Singapore government was pressed to open it chewing gum market. But the government had limit the sale of chewing gum available in pharmacy, dentist or medicinal use only.
    Nowaday anyone can buy any amount of chewing gum over the counter from phamacy by just register down their name and IC number only. Kids with IC also can buy now.

    is that true? i thought they only allowed the sale of those nicotine replacement gums.

    as for the normal gum, a lot of people buy and bring back from overseas

    A cleaner way is to freeze some ice (big enough to cover your gum). Then add salt to gum and apply ice to the gum.
    It should freeze and harden. When hardened, it should be easy to peel off.

    from what i understand, our local pharmacies sell chewing gum too, not only those for smokers to ween off smoking ones.

    these are supposedly the "good for teeth" types, not the normal wrigley's 5 stick per pack type

    search: as in searching for an solution if already being answered before.

    not to dig out old thread and resurrect it, beside, reply to an query many years ago, is useless to the thread starter.

    if a CSer have similar questions, but not being answered in a old thread, it is better to start his own new thread.
