How to Remove Tree Sap




Introduction: How to Remove Tree Sap

About: Hi my name is David, I like to make things out of Wood, also like to take things apart and fixed them.

How to remove Tree Sap, with Hand Sanitizer.

I have also included the video I made from Youtube

Step 1: What's Needed:

What's Needed:

Small bottle of Hand Sanitizer

Microfiber Cloth Towel

Step 2: Step 1

Add a small amount of Hand Sanitizer to the Tree sap, let it set for a couple seconds. Then wipe until it's dry, apply a second coat if needed. This also works on Windows.

Note this should work on most paints, but please test in a inconspicuous area first

Step 3: Step 2

After removing Tree Sap, I would recommend waxing over the areas, because Hand Sanitizer will remove the wax layer.

    Very nice. Goo Gone (TM) contains peanut and lemon oils. It's great stuff. It safely will remove tree sap as well. It's also great on those stickers stuck to the bottoms of plates, saucers, glasses etc.
    Cheap too. Dollar Store carries it.
