September 5, 2008, Newsletter Issue #256: Wood Pitch Removal from Clothing

Tip of the Week

To remove wood pitch, use mineral spirits (paint thinner). Itīs safe to use on most everything, but you should test it to make sure it wonīt leave a mark. The easiest way is to put some paint thinner in a spray bottle and spray it on the pants. It should soften up the pitch and allow you to wash it out.(You might need to retreat the area until the pitch thins enough to remove.)

Before you put the clothes in your washing machine, wash out the thinner with plenty of soap and water. Itīs greasy, but it will wash out. Once all the thinner is gone, you can wash it in your machine like you normally do.
