Gasoline.......natures solvent.

Cheap,readily available, and cleans like a white tornado...........And it won't hurt the paint......just don't use it on an EPDM or TPO roof and if you do, do so in moderation.

You just need a modicum of common sense so you don't splode yourself, and don't smoke.

WD-40 works really well on tree sap as well. Especially when it gets on my kids hands.

I just found that peanut oil works great on removing pine sap at least. I haven't tried it on any other tree sap. If you don't have peanut oil just use peanut butter.

In a pinch I have grabbed a handful of sand or dirt and rubbed that into my hands to remove grease and oil. I used WD on one of my polyester racing shirts recently to remove old oil stains. Soak to rehydrate the stain, apply a dose of dawn dish soap, rub in then wash accordingly. I saved a expensive item from the trash.

That would be a little rough on the paint wouldn't it? But I guess if followed up with a buffer, some compound and hand glaze, it would definitely take the sap off LOL.

Where was it mentioned or that I recommended using sand on your vehicle, I assume your post is sarcasm filled otherwise take the time to re read my response. I went off topic in response to getting something off of your HANDS. This is what i wrote in part

Schaeffer's Specialized Lubricants makes a 'multi-purpose degreaser' that's the greatest on pine sap I've found. Sprays on and rubs off quite easily. U may have to google Schaeffer's to find your nearest retailer 'cause I don't see it everywhere. Other stuff does work, but if you have really touchy skin,(eczema I.e.) those can be pretty hard on your hands....the Shaeffer's has caused me no problems...

Is it this one.

Biodegradable, heavy-duty, citrus-based degreaser with astonishing clean power that cuts through heavy greases, tire marks, adhesives, soot and more.

I did a search on the schaeffer name and their company came right up and all their products.

I have found that Eternabond brand "Eternaclean" works very well on my TPO roof for getting sap off. It comes out freezing cold and the sap just chips off. Don't know what it will do on the paint of the cab though
