Pine Sap Removal

Post  Robert J. Baran on Sun Oct 21, 2012 2:08 pm

What do YOU use to clean up your hands and fingers with after a lengthy and enjoyable needle-removal session?

What is/was the traditional Japanese method for so cleaning?

Mosy any of the hand cleaners mechnics use. I've also heard mayo but have never used it. We mostly use GoJo w/ pumice.

Turpentine (distilled from pine sap). Then soap and water.

Pretty expensive and kind of tough on the skin, but effective.

Mayo does not work. Just tried it. Latex glove do work,but the sweaty hands takes away from my joy of working on my trees. I do wear them when applying lime sulfur, because having that stuff stay on my hands makes me want to puKe.

Not a problem now because I have no pines, but back in the olden days in Kanuma we used kerosene. We heated rooms with kerosene heaters, so it was always around.

Tough on the skin, yes. But cheap; I think I paid 1 euro for a liter of the stuff, which lasts me years..

$6 for a quart doesn't seem too steep. You don't use more than a couple of tablespoons' worth, and soap easily takes it off when you're done. But I only have one, very small, pine.

Put a light coating of petroleum jelly on your hands (front and back) before plucking, and rub it in well. Afterwards, wash with a good grease cutting dish detergent.

Yes. vegetable oil and then some Dawn or Ivory diswashing soap.
If need be just work some hand cream on afterwards.

Turpentine and or Mineral spirits [ odorless or other ]/ Kerosene, is asking for contact dermatitis especially if you have very fair [ pink or white skin].

This is why I use a painting technique that requires no solvents.
Later.

Purell antibacterial cleaner works good, you might have to use it twice. Olive oil is good to.
