Try Goof Off spray (not the pour-on stuff; that's a bit messy), leave it on for a minute, then wipe away, wash the car and apply a coat of wax ASAP. There was a lot of pine trees at my old job and I DREADED parking under them, but sometimes it was the only spot available... Not to mention... I admit, it's right outside the window so it makes it worth it for me to be able to stare at my car whenever I please .

The easiest way is to use a hot shampoo solution

Hot water + shampoo = hot shampoo solution.

For shampoo I use Dodo Juice BTBM or Britemax Clean MAX.

I get tree sap on my car everyday. I use 22pple last month but the sap still in all over the side of the car.

I never tried hot wash. i use a foam gun so it uses the cold water from the hose. I might have to try that.

that trix stuff looks good too. do you have to wax afterwards? I wonder how it works on sap?

CarPro Trix is a tar and fallout remover in one so it will effect the wax (unfortunately Ph neutral or 7 means noting in real world terms).

Most tar removers will be effective at removing tree sap but they will degrade the LSP.
