I have a large and lovely black velvet shawl (v. expensive) with a decorative edge followed by a long fringe. Fringe is 4 inches long. Some how, some where, a white piece of chewed gum attached itself to a bit of the fringe. Disgusting. It is really mashed in there. I do not want to cut it off, similarly as you would not choose to cut your hair.
Please, any suggestions??
