I've had good luck getting propolis off my hands by rinsing with alcohol when I get back to the house. The current propolis issue is my handkerchiefs. I often slide my hive tool into my back pants pocket when I'm working in the bee yard and, subsequently, my handkerchiefs now have propolis splattered all over them. It doesn't bother "me", but I can't use them in public anymore as others see this and don't know its propolis.(somewhat akin to those scenes in the old Japanese horror movies when people are fleeing the monster...except this time it's my handkerchief.) Any suggestions for getting those clean...or should I just replace them?
