my name is Jan and this is my first post on your forum. I have a problem with pine resin for which I cannot find a precise answer; I was hoping you might give me some insight on how to deal with this.
I run a music recording studio, and last Christmas I somehow brilliantly managed to get it all sticky with pine resin. I was driving the tree to my house, so my car got resin all over it, my hands, my mobile phone and subsequently my recording studio. I underestimated resin and thought it can be dealt with by simply washing hands. The real problem began when I realised that the resin won’t dry, it stayed sticky for days (weeks) so I had to pause my work in order not to get resin all over some very expensive and sensitive equipment.
I did my research and managed to clean some of it with hand creme and/or medical gasoline but every now and then seemed to stumble upon something sticky.
So I was left with two options – either clean everything (impossible), or wait for resin to come to the end of it’s life cycle and completely dry; then it won’t be a problem. I decided to wait.
But then I stumbled upon an information that resin never dries completely which is something I can’t really understand how?
Please, if there’s someone over here who know’s a little bit more about the topic, please help me out.
