I tried google and couldnt find anything about cigars but I found people taking about chewing gum and it might work the same trying using a plastic knife to scrape it off then use a scrubby pad someone else also said they used dryer sheets rubbing them right on the gum and it came off so you could try that too I hope it helps

the worst thing I have ever washed was loose change. I hope you find something to get it off. I read that some people also have better luck freezing it before they try to chip it off. good luck

Holy crap, I’d have strangled Fiance if he had done that. I’m so sorry this happened, what a pain in the ass!

I would make him help clean it up!!!!! ARGH!

I’d suggest rubbing alochol as @cr6zy: suggested.

Or white vinegar (of course let the dryer cool down first and test an area to see how it works). 

I use vinegar in our dishwasher and washing machine to help keep them stain free and smell free (I put a cup in an empty load and run either machine like I would normally). 

Let us know what works! Good luck!

I would probably put MrND in the dryer and put the whole thing out at the curb :/

I’m so sorry for you, you must be so mad!  but this is totally something i would do to Fiance – I’ve already broken his laptop (by spilling wine on it -oops!) and the other night I didn’t shut the freezer door properly, it defrosted and we had to throw out a load of food so please be nice to him!! he didn’t meant it…people like him and me really can’t help it Cry

@LMD84: HAHA! I second this!

 

@indibee: Mr. Roux once washed brand new cheap orange towels (horrible towels his mother bought us.) with brand new expensive gorgeous WHITE towels that my grandmother bought us. Needless to say, everything came out orange and splotchy. I cried, because I loved those towels. They were big and soft and fluffy and he RUINED them. Now I do the laundry.

the rubbing alcohol should work i use it for everything. im becoming a clean freak and i either bleach or alcohol everything lol. alcohol is a great household de greaser and it dosent dry sticky (and its cheap!!)

i have a 2 year old who colors and spills and everything and the alcohol cleans it and is non toxic when it dries.

@indibee:I definitely second the goo gone. That stuff will get anything out! But you might want to go over it all with some soap and water afterwards, it can be kind of greasy. Wouldn’t want you to get that on your clothes while drying.
