    Default propolis

    Okay, somebody share their secret for getting propolis off ther hands and tools. There must be a magic soap, solvent, or special concoction. Thanks

    A propane torch will melt/burn the propolis off your tools. Not recommended for your hands.

    It bothers me the most on my hands, and I DO use the torch to light my smoker. Hmmmmm.

    The orange citrus hand cleaner works, alcohol works, mineral spirits works, the torch hurts like the dickens!
