What will remove pine tar from white baseball pants?

I'm guess, but I would try WD-40. It removes road tar from cars and the WD-40 would come out with some shout. I washed white baseball pants a lot when my son was in school but mostly dealt with red mud. The occasional pine tar and grass stain would show up and I had an arsenal of products. Simple Green, Shout, WD-40, Bleach, Dawn, Amonia and if oxyclean had been available, I would have used it too.

The product is called GOO GONE and it has worked on every sticky, gluey mess I have tried it on . You will find it at Wally Mart, K Mart, Target type stores, you may even find it in the grocery stores in the Laundry products isle

How do you remove pine tar from soft clothing?

By Robert N Bahman from FL


Removing Pine Tar from Clothing

Things you'll need:

  • rubbing alcohol

  • laundry detergent
  • hand sanitizer
  • bug spray
  • peanut butter
  • soft cloth

Step 1: Apply rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer (with alcohol) to a cloth. Rub the cloth on the pine tar to remove the sap. After you have removed all the sap with the cloth, wash the piece of clothing as you regularly would.

Step 2: Place 1/2 tsp. of peanut butter onto the tar and rub it in with your hands. Massage the peanut butter into the clothing to loosen the sap from the fabric. Wash it off with cool water to make sure the sap has been completely removed.

Step 3: Spray certain bug sprays, such as OFF! Deep Woods, directly onto the tar. Rub the area gently to remove the spot.

Step 4: Launder the fabric as you normally would, once the sap is gone. Good luck. (04/18/2010)
