Have you ever been out camping or hiking and gotten the sticky sap of a pine or spruce on your hands?

You can use your handy pocket lip balm as a sticky pine sap remover on your hands.

Here’s something that I always have in my pocket and that
has come to my rescue many times. Have you ever been out
camping or hiking and gotten the sticky sap of a pine or
spruce on your hands? As we all know, soap and water won’t
get it off – but that little tube of Chap Stick® in
your pocket will work as a sticky pine sap remover perfectly. It’s also great
for getting off that nasty adhesive left from price
stickers. I recently bought a pair of reading glasses that
had the price sticker stuck onto the right lens. My Chap
Stick® got the sticker gunk off in a flash without
harming the lens. For years I have wanted to share this
secret but didn’t know how to get the word out. Thanks,
MOTHER!
