    Witch Hazel and a cotton ball should work well. Can be bought at any drugstore for about $1.50. Looks like a bottle of rubbing alcohol.
    (Alcohol) Had to check that spelling twice. Yep its correct!
    No I have not been drinking. A cold beverage does sound good. A unfrequent cold one it shall be now. Bye!

    Vegetable oil will remove the sap, or any product containing vegetable oil such as mayonaise. Then use soap and water.

    Turpentine or any wax or grease remover will work, but they smell.
  4. I use paint thinner for equipment and rubbing alcohol on me.

    Buy the kind in a tub.

    This hand cleaner is great because...

    1) Costs reasonable.
    2) Smells pleasant.
    3) Not harsh on your skin.
    4) Not greasy.

    Gosh I sound like a commercial for the stuff.

    Never tried it on pine sap but WD-40 works on every thing else I have managed to get on my hands, use it all the time

    Thats a good one!!! Plus the wd-40 will lubricate the joints in your hands too.....:eek:

    Pine sap is a real PITA, especially if you get it on your arms and it gets tangled in the hair. I use the hand cleaner that comes in an orange tub, works great!

    Rubbing alcohol will take it off like nothing else will. Try it you'll see!
