Tips for removing pine sap or pitch from your hands as posted by the ThriftyFun community. Post your own ideas here.
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!

I knew it took sticky wax off your skin, so when I had sap from a Christmas tree all over my hands I decided to use some baby oil and it took it right off! No harsh chemicals!

I got pinesap on a beautiful dress of mine. Someone suggested hand sanitizer. It worked great and didn't leave a stain like oil.

After reading the above, I tried Canola oil to remove pine sap. Worked great. I agree, I think any oil-based product will likely work.

I tried the cooking spray and it did work great. Also softens hands. A two for one deal. AWESOME!
Peanut butter worked a lot. Thanks. I suggest oily cooking supplies were great like toothpaste, mayonnaise, and toothpaste. :) Happy.

Goof Off, Goo Gone, and lighter fluid for pocket lighters all work very well.

A million thanks! I ended up here from Google because my daughter had a pine tree drip sap right onto the inside corner of her nose, next to her eye. The oil worked fast and like a charm. Thanks again everybody! JoAnne
The Pam really worked fast. Thanks

Mayonnaise works well also.

Thanks People! It really works. I tried using PAM to get the sap off of my sandel and it worked. I just sprayed it on, waited 10 seconds and washed it off. You just need to scrub a little bit. Thanks!

spray pam worked...and fast!

Pam cooking spray works the best. Just spray a quarter size amount in your hand, rub your hands together and its GONE!. Then just was hands with soap like normal.
