HEY GUYS, I tired the alcohol....BAM!!!! Came right off!!!

I was so happy I decided to use the jet black cleaning package to clean and re-wax the panels that were harrmed by the sap!!!!

I will try using the alcohol trick on my moms car and my bus!

glad you fixed your issue

if you wash your car and put a wax or polish on it, the next time sap goes on just rinse your car with water and car soap. You shouldn't even need to touch the paint with anything but the hose water.

if not, well I think the alcohol method sounds interesting, but if you have wax already on your car you don't want to waste it and strip it off. Idk about you but the wax I use wasn't cheap.

I'm assuming you had a wax or polish on? Idk, maybe you had bigger "dots" of sap on there? A couple weeks ago I washed my car, parked it under a tree and like 5 hours later a ton of sap and bird stuff. The sap was all over but in little globules, and some dots. You could feel how bumpy it made everything. Anyways, I just got to washing the car again this past weekend and I threw my water on it. It felt like I got it all. I also clayed it do be doubly sure. Maybe it was the wax I was using.


Anyways the good news is that you got yours off.

You must have mixed some sand in with it then. there are zero abrasives in Goo Gone. I've been using it for about 20 years.
