How To Get Pine Sap Off of Your Hands

The Christmas tree is big this year.

And it was heavy to lift and carry in.  Couldn’t find any good gloves.  Well, didn’t really go look for them either.

The pine sap very sticky.

From years of childhood tree climbing, I knew soap and water would be no good.  Tried it anyway.  No good.

Tried olive oil and voila!  No more pine sap on the hands.

Rub a little olive oil, any cooking oil should work fine, on your hands like lotion.  Wash off with soap and water.  Good to go!  Okay, maybe you knew that already.  I did not.
