Sugar Scrub

Martha Stewart Living, January 2004

A spoonful of sugar helps your dirty hands come clean, especially after you take out the Christmas tree and bring its sap back in on your palms. Squeeze a dime-size amount of liquid soap on dry hands, cover it with sugar, and rub hands together. As you scrub, the mixture loosens the sap and exfoliates your hands; then it rinses right off.

    My mother was a great gardener and always used sugar and soap to clean her hands after being in the garden that was back in the 50ts

    Hand sanitizer will also remove sap from clothing without staining.

    Also you can you a hand sanitizer I have a friend who works on a tree farm and swear by this. It will remove all the sap from your hands.
