How To Get Tree Sap Off Your Hands

by Colleen McGee

Have you been outside and gotten tree sap or pine pitch on yourself? If so, here is how to get tree sap off your hands.

Colleen says:

I remember when I was a kid I used to love to climb trees, including pine trees.

When I would climb on pines I would get pine pitch and sap all over my hands. When I would come inside my Mom always put butter or oil on my hands, and the sap would come right off.

Taylor says:

Thanks Colleen for your tip.
