How do you get pine sap out of your hair?
The most surefire way, to get tree sap/pitch out of hair is orange pumice hand cleaner. cover the affected area with the hand cleaner and massage it into the hair, dont be afraid to use plenty. let it sit for a few minutes rinse hair, then cover the area with conditioner. let sit for a few minutes then rinse. and now you are sap free. == == == == == == I have heard that peanutbutter works. But from expierence, today actually, plain butter works in your hair also. Wash it out and put some shampoo or conditioner in it, wash that out, and your ready to go. Isopropyl alcohol. Gasoline works very good, but stinks to high heaven. You can also have a friend cut the offending strands out. CAREFULLY. Plain butter works great also works for getting it off your skin but you have to scrubb it a little. Nail polish remover works, scrub down with that until you can get a comb through your hair (be careful, don't force it), at this point your hair might feel more waxy than anything, so just shampoo and condition and the waxy feeling will go away. If you dont have time to get the sap out of your hair right away, put some loose powder (make-up powder, baby powder etc) in the section, that way the sap won't stick to anymore hair than it already has.
The glue in pine trees is sap. This sap has been made into glue by native Indians for centuries. To make pine sap glue as the Indians and pioneers did, melt the pine sap in a small can or tin over a campfire. Leave room in the tin for some crushed charcoal (make this from the remains of yesterdays campfire) Mix crushed charcoal into about 3 times as much hot pine sap and you now…
Yes pine sap is edible. The amber ones taste like juicy fruit. The darker ones...eh I stay away from those. They'll stick to your teeth like glue and they taste...well piney Next point. Pine sap can also be used as a type of solid fuel. Tried is many times and many times it saved my neck from freezing. Final point. Pine sap can also be used to clean your teeth. Have fun! Brian
To clean pine sap from outdoor windows, you can apply some rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball to the affected area, wipe off the sap, and clean the area with water. If some sap remains on the window, then use commercial bug and tar remover according to package instructions. Once the sap is completely removed, you can use a window cleaner.
