:>Any ideas on how to get tree sap of jeans? (hemlock sap)
:Mineral spirits or kerosene.
I would think that Turpentine would work fine, if you have it. If you
don't have that, I'd definitely try the mineral spirits or kerosene or
paint thinner. Then you just wash with soap and water. What I'd do is
put a little liquid soap right on the areas where you put the solvents,
The same way you get it off your hands. If you
aren't to smart you use lots of soap and hot
water, a little smarter and you might use
turpentine or paint thinner but then your hands
smell awful and your wife says get that awful
stink out of the house. Now when you have really
figured it out, you remove the bulk mechanically
and the use butter or any food oil (I prefer olive
oil) followed by soap.
On the jeans, almost anything you use will result
in a stain or some damage. Least harmful and most
effective will be a food oil followed by regular
washing, may result in no stain.
