    I've used Ice cubes, peanut butter, and baby oil. Depending on what the shirt is made out of I'd be more apt to use the baby oil. That's what I use to get it out of my daughter's hair.

    If its a fairly good amount, try putting the shirt in the freezer till it gets hard and it may scrap right off. Be careful with to much oil product in material as it may then be hard to get out and then have another stain to deal with.

    freeze it, scrape off as much as you can, then use Go-Jo on it and wash in water as hot as the fabric will allow.

    I've also heard that peanut butter is good for removing bubble gum.
