We’ve been out in the yard every weekend clearing what appears to be about fifty billion tons of leaves and pine needles. And by ‘we’ I mean the the adults, because my kids are simply jumping in the piles. THE NERVE. Actually my daughter does try to help, then gets distracted, and HEY LOOK IS THAT A SQUIRREL?! Anyways, with all the fall clean-up comes the inevitable sticky, sap covered hands and clothing but I have the BEST trick for getting it off in mere seconds. Ready?
It’s that easy. It’s the magical sap eraser. Soak a cottonball or washcloth with rubbing alcohol and rub it on clothing or skin to remove the sap. Here my sweetie is modeling the magic– the BEFORE is on the right, the AFTER on the left.
Go try it. I’ll wait.
SEE? Isn’t that amazing?!
No more sappy, sticky hands or clothing. Which means no excuses for not raking of those pine needles, darn it!
