While arranging some pine boughs in a vase as a centerpiece, I ended up with pine sap all over my hands. I tried soap, Dawn, scrubbed, and scrubbed, nothing worked - still sticky. I went upstairs and got some toothpaste. The pine sap was gone - no sticky!
This is a handy tip I learned while cleaning up pine limbs after a recent ice storm. If you get pine sap on your skin you can spray a little WD40 on it and rub it gently.
To remove pine tar from your hands: spray with Pam Cooking Spray or a similar product. . .
