I know this has NOTHING to do with pop culture other than the fact that it is the Christmas season and people are putting up Christmas trees, but I wanted to share with everyone a great little tip.
If you get pine sap on your hands – or your clothes or car for that matter – the best way to remove pine sap is with alcohol-based hand sanitizer. You can do a search on-line and find recommendations for olive oil, peanut butter and nail polish remover, but I have found that hand sanitizer works fast, won’t hurt your hands, and it sanitizes them at the same time as a bonus! It is basically the same principle as removing it with rubbing alcohol, just easier to handle.
I’ve even used it to get pine sap off of my car as well. I don’t know what alcohol does to a car finish, so I use it sparingly and wax it right away after using it.
