The conventional wisdom that burning pine creates creosote is a completely false although very popular myth (particularly on the east coast). Creosote is created by burning wet wood too slowly (particularly in a stove that can be damped down). The resin in pine and other softwoods is not a factor in the creation of creosote. In fact, the resin may cause the fire to burn hotter and cleaner. There may be other reasons to avoid pine in a fireplace, but creosote is not one of them. The science on this is pretty simple.

Using a hose, a pump sprayer, and a scrub brush is slower but safer, and just as effective. Denver House Painters
