How To

When Things Get Too Sappy...

Dec 8, 2016

Tree sap happens. And, when it does, removing the sticky substance can be a tricky task. This sap removal how-to works on everything from tree skirts to clothing. We’re demonstrating with a good pair of gloves that got sapped during a trip to the Christmas tree farm.

Gather These Tools:

The Laundress Sweater Comb (or butter knife), Wash & Stain Bar


STEP 1:
Prep & Pretreat

Remove the pine needles from the item or items.

STEP 2:
Remove The Sap


When dealing with a particularly gooey mess, rub the tree sap with an ice cube continuously for 2-3 minutes. Then, gently scrape off the excess sap with The Laundress Sweater Comb or a butter knife, depending on the item being treated. For example, when removing sap from cashmere and knits, use the Sweater Comb. For down coats and moisture wicking jackets, use a butter knife. If the sap has hardened, go ahead and grab your Wash & Stain Bar!


STEP 3:
Treat & Launder

Run water over The Laundress Wash & Stain Bar until lathered and work into the stain.

Then, launder as normal.
