Anyone know why gum in your mouth turns hard when you drink water?
Can’t figure it out, but there are so many wonderful minds in the CR, who I am sure will have some great answers.
The gum becomes softer when hot and hard when cold it, works like rubber since it is made of synthetic rubber.
I would think it has nothing to do with the water itself but rather the temp. change.
It cools down the gum.
