How to Remove Tree Sap
Sap is a tough substance to remove, especially when it has been left to dry for any length of time. As it hardens, it turns dark and adheres even more strongly to whatever surface it has dripped on.
This gooey substance which oozes out of trees is unbelievably sticky, and can attach itself to anything –your car, patio furniture, your deck, or your clothing. Removing tree sap is especially important for cars, as it can corrode the paint or chip it off when the dried sap is removed. Dirt and grime also adhere to sap, causing further damage to a vehicle’s finish.
TIP: Never try to scrape tree sap off your car! Instead, use something that will dissolve it, so it can be gently wiped away.
People have tried all sorts of things to remove tree sap, such as mineral spirits, gasoline, rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, mayonnaise, and even hand sanitizer.
Instead, we recommend using a product specifically designed to emulsify and dissolve tree sap, quickly and safely, without harming surfaces or making a bigger mess to clean up. Goof Off® Heavy Duty – the all purpose remover -- handles the toughest, stickiest messes like they’re nothing. To remove sap:
- Apply Goof Off® Heavy Duty Spot Remover & Degreaser.
- Watch it dissolve sticky messes like tar and sap.
- Wipe the mess away.
