Hair today, gone tomorrow
« on: April 10, 2018, 07:56:41 AM »
Sap... resin... kino (lot of mine has kino)... all pretty much the same thing.

How do you get rid of it? Machine also but mostly on yourself... as we all know everything gets coated in the stuff at times.

Me, I usually use diesel to lift the sap. Then degreaser to lift the diesel. Then soap or handwash to get rid of the degreaser. Seems to work as well as anything I've ever run across and i mostly go home basicly clean most nights: cept for the black stains in my calluses that only seem to disappear if I'm on holiday for a week.

Normally if I got something that works ok I dont really bother trying anything new and improved. But ummm... (yeah guys lets laugh at this one)... I normally saw with a cap on and today I didn't. 

Unless one of you guys has a better answer its either diesel for shampoo or bald tomorrow.

Ah, it redirected me to here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kino_(gum)

Now I understand, it's the sap that oozes from a tree like the eucalyptus.

It's laid down by the tree as an injury response. After fire you get a thin belt of it maybe 1/8 thick which is okay to saw through.  But there's a couple species of cicada and the mahogany glider that live on it... because they feed repeatedly in the same place as the tree grows you get pockets of kino: anything from an inch to four inches long and often inches deep, full of "gum" with a consistancy of molasses in fresh logs. Plow through them with a circular saw and it's messy.



And then it sets. I think I'll be Kojack after work today.  It's not washing out

PEANUT BUTTER! Doesnít take much, a little rough if you use chunky! Rub it onto your hands, wipe off with papertowel, and wash with usual soap. Wahlaw, pitch gone.

I've heard some of my customers say MAYONNASE works the best they've seen!

Use it just like GOJO!

I heard feathers work real good. Just rub them in and you're good to go.

This product seems to work good for me.
And you're hands don't reak of chemicals or diesel from it. 
Do not wet your hands first though. Use it on dry hands and it works wonders. Way better than gojo.

For hands a mechanic clued me in years ago, rub hand lotion on before work so your skin isn't so thirsty. I've forgotten to wear a cap when sawing pine on the circle mill, yup that's a good way to have big hair :D

As I understand it the main ingredient in WD-40 is kerosene so straight kerosne should work well. Anything with cooking oil like mayonaise will also work but slower. Turpentine will remove sap as well. It's much safer using less volatile solvents as the higher you go in volitility  the more dangerous it is to your body.

Be Kojack,  copious quantities of that stuff is difficult to get out of hair no matter what you use. You may have a cold head with winter just around the corner though.
