    Tree Sap Grrrrr!!!!

    Well I went out of town for Memorial Day weekend and absent mindedly parked my car underneath some trees at my apartment complex. Unfortunately when I returned on Monday my car was covered in tree sap. I was pissed!! Some of the sap had already dried on the paint (white diamond) and there were also some fresh droplets, anyway, I went down to Advanced Auto Parts and picked up some tar and bug remover, I applied it sparingly to each of the droplets. Obviously the ones that were dry took a little more elbow grease to remove but the fresh ones dissolved easily. After cleaning I thoroughly washed and rinsed my car and so far the paint is fine and all evidence of sap is non existent! Here is a link to the product that I used.

    I've always used warm to hot water and a terrycloth to remove tree sap. The problem I think with hot water is that it probably removes too much wax.

    As said above warm water if used right away will work on all sap except pine, bug and tar removers work great, there is a product made by Stoner called Tarminator, it's a spray and works great, also clay would be another good choice.
