How do you put pine tar on bat and make it thick?

The best way is to spray it on with a spray jar. Put the pine star substance in a spraying container and spray it on, the more you spray, the thicker it will be. You can also get a, what people like to call, a Pine Rag, which is a rag that is covered in pine tar, then wiped on the bat. Remember! The more pine tar you add, the thicker it will be!

How do i Put pine tar on baseball bats?

You want a very light layer on the handle. It is wise to put a more hefty layer either on your helmet or on the top (barrel end) of the handle to use when the pine tar already on the bat wears off. Most pine tar is either in a stick that you rub on like chap stick, or in liquid form on a rag, which you rub on as well.

How do you apply pine tar?

Well first of all to do it correctly and the least messy way to do it is to apply it with a pine tar rag or just a rag. Apply the pine tar on the rag ( you might want to put some athletic tape on the other side of the rag if your using an ordinary one so it doesnt soak through). Apply until the rag is sticky dont hesistate to put a lot becouase you can reuse it later. Now rap the rag around the bat handle and keep doing so until you can see the bat handle is covered and has just enough to where it is sticky, you dont need to much but enough to last you a game or so. I recommend wearing batting gloves and when your gloves get slick any between pitches grab the handle of the bat and to enhance your grip. You can also apply to your helmet. Pine tar is also proven to give you faster bat speed because you dont have to grip the bat as tight. Hope this helps

Is the pine oil in pine tar soap harmful for someone with prosthesis?

Yes it is very harmful. My brother has a degree in biology and is very familiar on this subject.This is added later from another user. To better answer your question:Pine tar it self is not harmfull in any way to your skin, and the pine tar it self is one of the most effective ways to treat prosthesis. However as you said, pine tar is Harmful. Well Yes and No. The pine tar is self is not harmful, but it is the Creosote that is harmfull not the pine tar it self. Creosote is a know skin irritant / carcinogen.It depends on how the pine tar is made. if the pine tar is made and the smoke from the fire in the kiln can not mix with the pine tar, then the pine tar has no know skin irritation documented anywere. seeing as 95% of all soap companies use PINE TAR OIL FILLD WITH CREOSOTE, it is hard to get away from this fact. but there are some companies that use Creosote Free pine tar in their soaps and other products, unfortunalty the most popular brand of pine tar soap is grandpa's brand, which uses this pine tar OIL with Creosote in it. My sister tried their pine tar soap and she broke out with a rash that she had to go to the doctor for.Now here is a company that makes a Creosote free Pine tar soap. we have tried it and it is wonderful. their web-site is .thanks hope this helpsTo Clarify: Are we talking about psoriasis the skin condition or someone with a prosthesis (artificial limb) who has skin tenderness issuesUM, sorry but your both wrong. Unless the U.S makes soaps different from the UK.Creosote soap was A.K.A Coal Tar soap, not Pine tar.Most pine tar soaps are now 100% natural vegetable oils and perfectly safe for use, infact reccommended for people with skin problems.You can find examples on eBay. Christina may I believe.Companies no longer mix wood preservatives and oils together in the making of soap, times have changed people.Unless the U.S. still do, but in Europe Coal Tar soap and the derivatives are banned. Pine tar soap 100% natural vegetable oil .. fine for use.Thank you and goodnight.p.s. I have an honours and masters degree in Biology. JFYI
