To remove the gum from leather upholstery, you can rub an ice cube (placed in a plastic bag) over the gum, and freeze the gum until it hardens, then chip it off. Another option is to spread peanut butter over the gum. Let sit a few hours to dissolve the gum then wipe away. Make sure to try the peanut butter on a non-visible area first to ensure that it doesn't damage the finish on the leather.
