Hi, my car has had tree sap in 4-5 places since July this year. The sap is now dry. Using a turtle wax bug and tar remover didn't help at all. Which is the best way possible to remove the dry sap?
My car has 12000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi, thanks for writing in. I would recommend thoroughly hand washing your vehicle with a pressure washer using hot water. Be careful and keep a good distance so you do not damage your paint. If this does not remove the sap, use a commercial product that is specific to sap, like Goof Off. Lastly, rubbing alcohol has proven itself to be an excellent sap remover when combined with a plastic or rubber squeegee. For more on these methods, please refer our article on how to remove sap from a car.
