A laundry question: Does anyone know how to get tree sap out of clothes?
Sitting on my deck yesterday afternoon I noticed a droplet on my pants. I thought it was water, but as I touched it discovered it was sticky tree sap. I tried removing it with first water, then soap and water, but no luck...any suggestions?
I don't know if this will work, but you might try rubbing on Goo B Gone. i think that is how it is spelled. I have used it for years to remove sticky things off all type of items. Good luck.
Rubbing alcohol works on pine sap. I live in a pine forest so am never without it. In emergecies I've used toilet water (not from the toilet of course!)
GO JO hand cleaner worked for me last week. Got it out of my husband's work truck and rubbed it on my shirt...It kept the sap soft until I got a chance to wash it.
Goo B Gone and GoJo and similar products are hand cleaners, for cleaning paint and grease off your hands. Much safer than paint thinner or varsol. Some hand cleaners also have pumice in them, which helps in some cases. So basically, anything that dissolves and breaks up grease, should work for tree sap, as long you get it out before the sap has started to dry. Some products may not be safe on all fabrics, so you should read the label. Hope that helps a bit, Denise. Good luck.

Does anyone over the age of 25 follow current fashion trends?Being 19 years old, I can't see the appeal of buying new clothes every season just to be like everyone else. Do older women and men feel the same way?
