Tree Sap

Thought asking how to get really dried tree sap off a vehicle would be less offensive here so, . . ., how DO you get it off? With damaging the paint underneath the hard, crusty, cruddy stuff that is.

yep, WD-40 to get rid of the sap and regular old soap and water to get rid of the WD-40 smear. Easy.

Auto parts stores sell some stuff to get it off. It worked for me on cottonwood tree sap.

I used a simoniz product. Lots of suitable goof off type products at auto parts stores.

Rubbing alcohol. It dissolves the stuff. Works well if it gets on your clothes too.
