Does anyone know how to remove tree sap from the car? I tried all different kinds of solutions from the Pep Boys but nothing seem to work.

Thanks in advance.

All you can do is use solvents and rub. Mineral Spirits < Paint Thinner < Methyl Ethyl Ketone

wd40 works like a charm. And its not as harsh.

Hopefully its not from an Oak tree. That sap will etch clear coat in a day.

As some one suggested mineral spirits do this at the wash stage wipe on the areas that have the sap let set for a minute or two DO NOT let this dry on the car then with soapy water wash off....I would think about clay right after that to pick up anything that is left on the car then polish and wax

Your in Sanford looks like I"m north of you in Sonoma County is you need any hands on help.....I have over 30 years in detailing experience
