How To Remove Christmas Tree Sap From Your Hands

I’m going to keep this short and sweet today. One, it’s Friday and Two, it’s been one hell of a week. 

So yes, the Christmas tree. The centerpiece of everyone’s holiday decor. So festive, so traditional, so full of SAP!

Anyone that has gotten hands on with a Christmas tree knows that sap is horrible to remove. First is the initial sap attach you get while lugging the tree into your house. Followed by more sap while stringing the lights and even more sap when you to decorate the tree. The Christmas tree sap can’t be avoided. 

It’s all over you palms, in between your fingers, under your nails, and up your arms.

Think of this scene in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

Soap and hot water will not cut it. 

Know what works like a charm every time? BUTTER.

Yep, the kind you cook with. Cut a sliver off a stick of butter and rub it all over your hands and arms and then wash with warm water and soap. You will be sap free after an application or two.
