How can I remove weeping willow sap from my clothes?


Answer by  Jenn91 (122)

The sap can be removed a variety of ways. If it is fresh, you can use an ice cube to freeze the sap and you should be able to just pick or scrape the sap off. If the sap has been on the clothes for a while, you can use a bristle brush to WD-40 to remove it.

You can remove the sap by soaking it in warm water for a few hours (if the sap is dry) and then washing it normally.

Much like gum anything with an oil base will remove sap. You can use cooking oils, butter or even peanut butter. run in and scrape off followed by immediately washing the clothing. Goo gone and rubbing alcohol may also work as well. Be wary that some oils can stain clothing.

Make a solution of vinegar and water and apply to the sap. Leave it on for a while and expose to sunlight. Should wash right out.

Depending on the type of fabric there are several different options to try. Remember to always do a test patch somewhere will it won't be noticed if you damage the fabric. Lighter fluid and rubbing alcohol can dissolve sap. For a less chemical option, you can freeze the garment for several hours and try to pick the frozen sap off.
