Tree sap is a thick substance that oozes from trees during the fall and winter months. When the sap stains clothing such as leather gloves, it sticks like glue to the material. The sap requires a greasy agent to counteract its stiffness, allowing it to lift from the leather material without damaging it.

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 tsp. Creamy peanut butter
  • Clean rag
  • Cloth
  • Leather conditioner

Scoop 1/2 tsp. of creamy peanut butter onto the tree sap on the leather gloves. With your fingers, rub the peanut butter into the tree sap. The peanut butter absorbs the sap, pulling it from the leather material.

Moisten a clean rag with water. Wring out any excess liquid from the rag.

Wipe the rag over the leather gloves, removing the peanut butter and tree sap. Fold the rag to expose a clean area as you continue to remove the stain from the leather.

Dry the leather gloves by pressing a clean cloth into the leather material.

Spray the leather with a leather conditioner after the gloves have dried completely.

Tips & Warnings

  • Ensure the rinsing cloth is damp, but not wet, when removing the stains from the leather.
  • Use only creamy peanut butter, not chunky.
