Dirt sure don't work!
Here is what I think is the best.
Get a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and wet a rag. Blot if on clothes, if on hands pour alcohol in a bowl and vigorously scrub. Pitch will come right off and hands are clean again. Ladies, you may want to follow up with lotion as the alcohol will dry out your skin.
