A stubborn substance to remove from your skin. This guide is about cleaning tree sap off hands.
This is a handy tip I learned while cleaning up pine limbs after a recent ice storm. If you get pine sap on your skin you can spray a little WD40 on it and rub it gently. Then wash with soap and water and it will come off completely. I wish I had discovered this sooner as in the past it has been such a pain to finally get it all off.

I went upstairs and got some toothpaste (not the gel kind) and put a quarter size dollop in my hand, then added a bit of water. Washed my hands like you normally do and the pine sap was gone - no sticky!

To remove pine tar from your hands: spray with Pam Cooking Spray or a similar product. Work the oil into the tar with a brush or your fingertips. Wash with liquid soap and rinse with water. I stumbled on this remedy when I was making a pine cone wreath for Christmas.
