Re: Pine Sap Removal

Use a razor blade on the glass followed by kerosene, and kerosene alone on the paint. A good coat of wax will make the stuff easier to get off in the future.

Re: Pine Sap Removal

Results:

1. Dish soap - nothing

2. WD-40 - nothing

3. Alcohol - worked with a bit of elbow grease to remove the globs. Left a nasty film behind (liquified sap, I presume) that needed to also be removed.

4. Mayo - did not try

There were a couple dozen globs to be removed in the end. Ugh. What a freaking mess.

Re: Pine Sap Removal

Try Murphy's Oil Soap. Works great on bugs and tar.

Re: Pine Sap Removal

For future reference acetone (aka nail polish remover) will also take off pine gum. But use it sparingly, as it can damage paint if left on. Just enough to remove the gum and wipe off any excess. Then touch up the wax.

Well, yes. I worked in a spray paint factory during summer vacations while in high school. Acetone is strong stuff and not good to get on your skin or in your lungs. (We cleaned everything in the paint factory with it. Ignorance is bliss.) I have a can of it, but would only use it on a vehicle if nothing else worked.
