    I've got pitch all over my knives! It just works so good to start a fire.

    Any way's I was trying to scrub it off. When my friend Alic told me to use a little butter.

    So I worked the butter over the pitch. And it just melted the pitch. And turned into a greyish butter mix.
    I wiped that goo off with a paper towel. And my blade was clean!

    It got me to thinking. What other little tricks don't I know? Maybe you guys have a trick or two you can post?

    I have been using butter to get pitch off of my hands for years, my great grandma taught me about it. WD40 also works, just about anything greasy or oily will work.

    I just like the butter because it's not poison, that can be absorbed through your skin.

    I don't need any more solvents in my body. After many years of building, and doing service work on gas stations. I've had my fill.

    One round of cancer was enough for me. Something to consider? o_O

    Pitch on the end of a twig in still water propells the stick forward like a motor boat.
