Remove Tree Sap from Your Hands

Category Miscellaneous

I asked Jeeves how to remove tree sap from hands. I saw an idea using baby oil and baking soda. While I was going through my bathroom, I couldn't find any baby oil but I found my trusty bottle of Purell hand sanitizer. I put the usual amount on my hands and it seemed like magic, the tree sap simply vanished. I then washed my hands, and all is good in the land of evergreens!

While cutting pine tree branches for Christmas decorations last year, my hands became covered in sap. We tried everything to get if off. My husband told me I would need gasoline. I decided to try a home remedy as I did not want to put gas on my hands. I mixed a hand full of baking soda with a small amount of baby oil to make a paste and rubbed it all over my hands. My hands were clean, soft and smelled good too! A few weeks later my husband used the same solution to clean window caulk off his hands. Try it, it really works!

Try a little butter or crisco (anything greasy), it's easy on the skin and the sap, tar, gum and etc. just roll right off. Then wash with soap and warm water. Works good when the kids get any of the above in their hair too! (12/03/2007)

Avon Skin-So-Soft Moisturizing Skincare also works extremely well, and quickly. I just rubbed it over my hands and then rinsed with lukewarm water. (12/04/2008)

So last night, my mom and I were putting up her tree. Well needless to say, I had to keep catching it when it fell. Wiith that, I kept getting tree sap on my hands. I washed my hands with Lava Soap and the sap came right off! Merry Christmas to all!

To remove sap from your hands after handling firewood, pour a little milk on your hands and rub them together. The lactic acid in the milk will remove the sap and stickiness from your hands.

If you use a cream moisturizing make-up remover, it removes tree sap from your skin almost instantly! Ive also heard that nail polish remover works on your skin. (08/26/2007)
