    I tried 91% isopropyl alcohol on some sap spots on my new truck & it did nothing. I’m going to try goop next.

    Well I was wrong! I sure thought the Goo Gone would work. Guess I will be stocking up on rubbing alcohol or stealing the wife's hand sanitizer!

    I use a simple yet overlooked cause of you don't own it you have to pay to use it , and that's a PRESSURE WASHER.

    Kinda old Video, but add 30% of alcoohol to your soapy wooder: dries faster, cleans better, and reduce residuals in your finish.

    I have a 2018 Camaro SS, a berry tree left stains on the rear. Nothing crazy but I have been trying to get it off with the turtle wax and goo gon- those didn’t work. Is alcohol safe on the clear coat? Not looking to damage the paint any further. Any recommendations?

    Pine sap, I'd use alcohol, Murphy's oil soap, or pine sol. I'm guessing pine sol will do the best job on pine sap, but alcohol would be the best overall sap remover.

    dont crucify me but i used Mother's detailer wax and bar. It worked but there is still a stain a bit. I'll try hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol.

    SO many expensive choices. Who would have suspected plain old everyday alcohol? My car has been sitting under a pine tree for six months. I paid less than $10 for a bottle of alcohol, some shop towels, and a scraper (for the sap on the windows). What i thought was going to be incredibly long to do took minutes! The alcohol pretty much nearly liquefied the sap! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

      I agree. A very strange omission on his part. He is usually very careful about this kind of thing.
      What's crazy that he never made a public announcement to inform his viewers!

    Tree sap is best removed when the car is placed in the sun. The sap becomes liquid again and then you can clean it of easily

    Rubbing alcohol may have worked the best, but it ruins your paint. Any auto repair shop will tell you that.

    You should have used wd40 with a sponge like you did in a how to remove paint transfer from your car video

    Alcohol ! Works fast too.
    Tried pinesol in my wash water once,
    Clouded the paint before I could rinse it off.

    Although alcohol removed the tree sap, it will strip coats off your paint finish according to what I’ve read. Not a good idea!

    • Jeff

      Cachi - not likely alcohol is used as a cleaner for most car polishes to removed all of the product

  • Christopher Huschek

    From what I've read with the WD40, you're supposed to leave it sit for five minutes on the sap, not a couple of seconds.

    I usually use WD40 on sap, tar, and adhesive then clean the area with 91% alcohol.
    Then wash the car as usual.

    Goo Gone is awesome at removing the residue left behind when removing car badges and decals. Let it soak for about 30 seconds then rub with a dry microfibre.

    (Thoughts) I think the WD40 would do it. But I don’t recommend doing that on your paint it will make it look like junk.
