Butter....seriously...dab a good pat of butter on the offending area and let it sit...obviously do it in the shade on a cool surface. It wipes right off with mininal effort.

 

Thank you very much, when visiting my parents in Vermont I find lots of sap and this will come in very handy!!!

small cotton ball ( stole from wife ) with small amout of alcohol ( called rubbing alcohol but don't rub it ) - dab it on tree sap and it'll come right off. I learned this from getting tree sap on my black SRT8 . of course wax after you're finished.

I tried that and failed! I put small swirls in my hood of my 98 Dakota doing that, I got the idea from my friends father who said it works great! I must be doing something wrong.:lolsmack:

Cold water huh? I've always used warm liquids to soften sap, but in most cases I just go with a spritz of a IPA (not the beer) diluted 1:1 or 2:1 and it practically dissolves the sap... only thing you need to do is follow up with at least revive and an application of wax/sealant as the alcohol will take the protection right off the surface along with the sap.

Will any of the above work on a convertible top? My wife said a co worker asked if I could take a look at here vert, she said it has tree sap on it. Before I even look at the roof I figured I ask here first.

WD40, don't waste your time with anything else

 

 

What is the main ingredient of WD-40 ?

 

 

Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main

ingredient of WD-40 is? Don't lie and don't cheat.

 

WD-40.

 

Who knew; I had a neighbor who bought a new pickup. I got up very

early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red

all around the sides of this beige truck (for some unknown reason).

I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news. He was very

upset and was trying to figure out what to do.... probably nothing

until Monday morning, since nothing was open. Another neighbor

came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed

the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that

was on the truck. I'm impressed!

 

 

 

WD-40 who knew? 'Water Displacement #40'. The product began from a

search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect

missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at

the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from the

project that was to find a 'water displacement' compound.. They

were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The

Convair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile

parts. Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing

in WD-40 that would hurt you... When you read the 'shower door'

part, try it. It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that

spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as

glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your stove top ... Viola!

It's now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.

 

 

WD-40 uses:

 

1. Protects silver from tarnishing.

2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.

3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.

4. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery.

15. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.

16. Keeps scissors working smoothly.

17. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes.

18. It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor! Use

WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn't

seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to

get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot

of marks.

19. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed

quickly! Use WD-40!

20. Gives a children's playground gym slide a shine for a super

handling on riding mowers...

bicycles for easy handling.

31. Removes splattered grease on stove.

32. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.

33. Lubricates prosthetic limbs.

34. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).

35. Removes all traces of duct tape.

36. Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to

relieve arthritis pain.

37. Florida ’s favorite use is: 'cleans and removes love bugs

from grills and bumpers.'

38. The favorite use in the state of New York , WD-40 protects

the Statue of Liberty from the elements.

39. WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a little on live bait or lures

and you will be catching the big one in no time. Also, it's a lot

cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that

purpose. Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or

lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.

40. Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away

immediately and stops the itch.

41. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on

the mark and wipe with a clean rag.

42. Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has

washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate

the lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash. Presto! The lipstick is

gone!

43. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would

displace the moisture and allow the car to start.

 

 

P.S. The basic ingredient is

I'm referring to the paint.. sometimes if its just a quick spot, I use my Wedding ring and spit.. works like a charm and removes the sap instantly!

 

I would use the platic razor blades I have for the glass..
