We all know trimming sucks. My least favorite part, though, is the sticky fingers and resin buildup. I could wear gloves, but I’m not very dexterous and my hands are huge, so gloves fit me poorly, even the big ones. I used to use isopropyl to get the resin off, but it will fuck up your hands if you do it too much, plus isopropyl is literally impossible to buy in stores lately (always sold out).
Then someone told me to use cooking oil. Rub a teaspoon of it on your hands and fingers, then wash off with dish soap. HOLY CRAP it took it right off and my hands are more moisturized than when I started.
It may not be a new technique, but it’s new to me, it works BETTER than alcohol, and I wanna shout it from the rooftops. I’d literally never heard of this technique before, ever.
