Cleaners everywhere rejoice: scientists have finally invented an easy-to-remove chewing gum.

Revolymer‘, a spin-off company fromThe University of Bristol‘, claims its new ‘Clean Gum’ can be easily removed from shoes, clothes, footpaths and hair.

  • Preliminary results also show the gum will degrade naturally in water and disappeared from pavements within 24 hours.

The gum will hit the shelves next year (2008) and could save councils millions of pounds in clean-up costs if it proves a hit.
