Did you check pep boys or advance auto or one of those places -- i vaguely recall seeing a bottle of solution specifically for the removal of tree sap.

If not, though, clay bar would probably work!

Get some Meg's bug and tar remover, then you can use a claybar to make sure it all cleaned up if you want. Don't put pb on your paint, very bad.

HELP with sap.

Someone out there has to know how to get the tree sap off of the windows.
I guess what I really need to know is how to remove the tree sap circles, the little rings the sap leaves behind. Anyone, any ideas ?????????????????????

Glass water spots answer

"GLASS SCRUB"
this stuff removes water/sap spots off of the windows. I used it today, YES it works.

Sounds Crazy but...

You can try using a dryer sheet that is wet. Take a new dryer sheet like downy or bounce, and use it to "pre-clean" your car. I do this and then wash the car. It takes bugs and tar off with almost no pressure. I use just the pressure of two fingers, and everything comes off of paint, or glass. Make sure it is a new sheet, cuz it's the fabric softener that actually does the work, you may have to use two or three if it is really heavy. Hope this helps.

Is the sap bad for the paint? Or is it htat it just causes the paint to not look as good? And it's hard to remove, so you have to be careful your technique does not hurt the paint? I moved a couple months ago and I have an assigned parking space. I am realizing that a tall pine tree is getting a lot of sap on my car. I don't know if I should be worried about what has happened... as in, is it damaging it by just sitting there? But I do know I have an urgency to get this crap off my car. It really makes the windshield terrible, too.

I've read that non-acetone nail polish remover works well and safely. I may try that, but I"m just wondering if damage has already been done other than leaving my car not as shiny and "pretty."
