Pine Sap on Jeans

Posted by daisymc (My Page) on

Anyone know how to remove pine sap from the backside of jeans? Husband sat on a log while building our house yesterday, pine sap went through all the way to his underware. Dont want to spend a lot of time on it, will just throw them away, but we have a lot more logs to stack so this will probably be an ongoing problem. Thanks for any help.

I've never had any luck gettoing out pinesap. Designate these jeans for jobs like painting or other outdoor work. They're stained already,just let them go.

Try Laquer thinner. My son sat in tree sap in his ball pants. I forgot to buy a new pair. Told my husband (like Tim the tool time Tanner) to just paint over the stain before the game. (No time to go to store.) When I arrived at the game I noticed he did a great job. Was told he got the stain out! How, I asked, Laquer Thinner he replied. I started yelling "Don't slide" too late he slid in to home. I just knew the pants would rip right off him. Much to my amaisement they were fine. All the parents started using laquer thinner to clean their childrens pants! Works well on carpet too. We have been using it for years. Give it a try. Everyone tells my husband he should be a laquer thinner salesman. He uses it for everything. Even cleans cuts. Burns like H--- but takes the soreness out. Good luck.
