I am fiddling with my hair.
Apparently today's lumberjacking got some pine sap in my hair and it is quite sticky and feels like I've got the "Alfalfa" thing going on on the side of my head.
I don't even know if shampoo will take this out. Nor do I really feel like washing my hair tonight.
I know what might take it out. Peroxide...

Big, old white patch of hair...

Hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol will dissolve the sap. Even veg oil or mayo will work, too.

Unless you're already blond, or want to look like Marilyn Monroe, I'd suggest something like GooGone or peanut butter. WD40 also takes out pine sap.

Gotcha.
I used rubbing alcohol. Of course I had to Google it first... or I might have used peroxide

I just finished slicing up three bell peppers, an onion and a poblano, putting them in a bowl and dousing in oil and a heavy sprinkling of Acapulco Gold, and making sure I had some fajita shells

Pray what is this Acapulco Gold you may refer to? I know what I think it is, but does it now come in Rub Form?

I completed raking the front yard and blvd today. Now mind you, I live on a hillside, so it's all down-hill. Took 4 days. Apparently I am not as fast as I used-to-was-be. A little bit at a time. It's not a horse-race. Will start the back yard tomorrow and then we may get a few days of rain. I could use a breather.

When I was a kid we used to get sap off our hands with anything greasy, like mayo, butter, or veg oil.

I don't think I ever cleaned the sap from my hands when I was a kid

I was sitting here thinking what would make a killer sauce for my fajitas. Something I haven't done before. And it hit me, what about those hot sauces someone brought me back from Mexico?

So I took the three small bottles out of the packaging. I opened each, putting a finger over the top for a taste test. I didn't really notice much of a difference between the habernero red, green and orange. So I spooned some sour cream into a container and grabbed the orange bottle, took the top back off and gave it a shake... only to realize that the tops of the bottles were full neck size. No plastic thingy and not necked down like tobasco bottles. Needless to say this is going to be a killer sauce. A taste test gave me the hiccups And the sour cream is still white!

WE use to have a giant pine tree in front of the condo and it dripped pine sap on our cars all summer. We were outside with a bottle of rubbing alcohol and paper towels just about every day cleaning sap drops off the car. Eventually the tree was removed.
