Sticky Residue Removal

In our ongoing series of collecting all the ways jojoba can be used, we were reminded of its value in removing sticky residue. As we put up the balsam fir tree (we are in Maine after all), our fingers were covered with bits of sticky pine sap. A few drops of jojoba and a few seconds of rubbing and voila - the sap was gone.

Jojoba is valuable for removing many types of sticky residue, there's no need to turn to something petroleum based. We find ourselves using it every time we remove a bandage, not only does it remove any residual adhesive, but it is beneficial for the soothing the skin.

We also find ourselves using jojoba on glass jars in the kitchen, if removing a label leaves sticky residue on the glass, a little jojoba rubbed on will almost always removed the stickiness left behind. Sometimes we also scrub with a stainless scrubber. Customers have also told us they have used jojoba to get bubblegum out of hair and off of shoes.

While you're at it, if you live in a cold climate, wax that snow shovel with jojoba to make your snow cleanup quicker. . Here's a blog post with directions

After 35 radiation treatments I recommended your product to my friend for his burns. Like magic it is soothing and healing the area. Wonderful jojoba. Thank you.

I just wanted to email to say that I'm so in love with Jojoba.

The Jojoba esters is an excellent bodywork tool (multiple treatment modalities) as well as at home for my skin. I've even used it to mix with essential oils and given it as a gift.

Jonna Climie

Thank you! I just wanted to say that I am just getting into making my own cosmetics and had been searching high and low for the most responsibly produced jojoba. This is very good quality at a fair price...

My clients love Jojoba; it washes out of sheets and clothing easily, and it makes my work easier. The absence of fragrance is especially nice. I highly recommend it!

Deb Hewson

After few days of using it, I must admit that the product has proved itself beyond my expectations! My 4 year old son was suffering from a red bottom due to frequent wetting. Since I've used the Jojoba, his skin is bright, clean, and with no signs of red. I'm very grateful to you.

I started out trying the jojoba on an older leather day planner that I have. It is in very good condition, so I didn't think I would see much of a difference. Boy, was I wrong! I didn't realize how dull it was until I used the jojoba on it.

Dee

I want you to know I appreciate your wonderful customer service. There is never a delay in the shipment of my order and I very much appreciate it.

I love this product. My esthetician had been using it on my skin for years. Trusting her knowledge of skincare and product-lines for the last 20+years, I decided to wean myself from traditional body moisturizers in 2018, and transition to jojoba oil for my basic skin care moisturization.
