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.

What You’ll Need:
An ice cube, Sweater Comb (or butter knife), Wash & Stain Bar

 

 


 

PREP & PRETREAT

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!

 


 

TREAT AND LAUNDER

 


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