How to remove pine pitch/ pine tar from almost anything
Pine pitch/ pine tar is very difficult to remove from your hands, cloths and most of all, the paint on your car. I will show you how to remove pine pitch/ pine tar from almost anything with ease, and with a very common product you can find almost everywhere you go today.
This product is so common in today's world that you probably carry it around with you every day. You can find this product in airports, grocery stores, public restrooms, restaurants, child daycare centers and most schools, I could go on forever but I think you get the point.
Removing pine pitch/ pine tar has always been a nuisance, it takes days for it to wear off your skin, it never comes out of your cloths in the regular wash, and you will probably end up ruining the paint on your car trying to scrub it off.
If it's on your cars paint, no worries, once I describe to you how easy it is to remove the pine pitch/ pine tar, try to avoid parking under any trees, all trees drip pitch/ tar, it's just some pitch/ tars are worst than others.
You probably didn't realize you carry around with you pine pitch/ pine tar remover with you every day, in your purse, ( if you carry one ) in your glove box of your car or you may even clip it to your kids backpack or your belt loop on your paints, depending on how germ a phobic you are. If you guessed this product is hand sanitizer your correct.
Hand sanitizer will remove pine pitch/ pine tar from almost anything, including the paint on your car. Just be sure you try it on the surface in a small area that's not noticeable before you go to town on whatever it is your cleaning.
Alcohol is the chemical ingredient that breaks down and removes the pine pitch/ pine tar. If you're using it on the paint of your car, just rub lightly and slowly so it is removed without ruining your paint, the alcohol won't harm the paint but the dirt in the cloth you're using might scratch the paint. You may have to wax the area again because alcohol will remove the wax that was once applied to your paint.
If you're in a tight spot and you don't happen to have hand sanitizer on you, but you have some eye glass cleaner wipes, these will work just as good. There is not much alcohol in the little towels , so you may need a few.
I also have installed many automotive accessories that use two sided tape like, body side moldings, door edge guards, bumper protectors and rear spoilers. Before you install these items onto your paint, the manufacturer will have you wipe all wax and dirt from the area that you will be installing your accessories on, the manufacturer will supply alcohol wipes in the installation kit. This is the reason I know alcohol is safe to use on automotive paint.
I have removed pine pitch/ pine tar with hand sanitizer from my own cars paint, car interior, skin, cloths, hardwood floors, footwear and hair, we hike a lot with the kids and they have a knack for getting it everywhere, like on the seat of their pants, and you can guess what it gets on after that.
You don't need the wooden spoon
