    A comment about the additional tips and advice section:

    I don’t think nail polish remover is a good idea, nor is it a “green” cleaner. Most nail polish remover is acetone. It is a carcinogen. Also, it might damage carpeting.

    I dropped my Christmas tree while trying to take it outside – apparently my little 5-foot self wasn’t strong enough to carry my 9-foot tree; who would have thought? 😉 I should have waited for my husband to get home from work. Anyway, hand sanitizer with alcohol worked perfectly. I rubbed it in with my fingers and cleaned it up with a white washrag, and it worked perfectly! Thank you! Saved me a lot of money and stress! :) Happy Holidays!

    This was amazing; I used hand sanitizer and the sap came straight up. Thank you so much for the tip! Happy new year! :)

    Purell worked for me and it was a pretty big area that the tree water dumped onto. I used a small bucket with carpet cleaner to use as a rinse and to my surprise…it is all GONE! :)

    I used lighter fluid and it worked a treat. Great stuff; loads of uses around the house and it evaporates, so no residue.
