Here's how to remove pine tar stains from clothes: This is a combination stain - oily/waxy and dye and requires special treatment. Fresh Christmas tree lovers and golfers that spend a great deal of the time in the rough may find this tip useful!
Answer: Start by treating the oily/waxy component of the stain with a pre-treater like Shout, Resolve or any stain remover.
