With summer here, more car owners are parking their vehicles under trees to keep them in the shade. This is a wise strategy; however, the owner often returns to find tree sap on the hood or windshield. We’ll go over the steps for removing tree sap from your car. Improper removal technique can result in paint damage.
Since tree sap is sticky, the natural tendency is to scrape off the gunk using a sharp object like your car keys. This is a mistake. We don’t recommend any scraping, not even with a blunter object like a credit card.
