Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Body Appearance

Problem:

Pine sap/tree sap on the vehicle.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Rubber scraper/spatula

  • Bucket of laundry detergent (like Tide) mixed with lukewarm water

  • Garden hose (hooked up to faucet for cold water use)

  • Rags/cloths

  • Appropriate auto wax

Solution:

If you see that there's dried tree sap / pine sap on your vehicle, don't fret, just roll up your sleeves and get to work to get it removed.

Caution: When dealing with anything that may be potentially hot (in this case, lukewarm water), make sure you take precautions.

Do the following steps in an effort get rid and wipe away clean the dried tree sap/pine sap off of your vehicle:

  1. Drop about three to four spoonfuls of laundry detergent, such as Tide, in a bucket, and then fill up about 2/5 of it with lukewarm water.  Take the bucket to your vehicle.

  2. Use a rubber scraper/spatula to carefully pry off the relatively big chunks of the dried tree sap/pine sap.

  3. Then, take a rag/cloth, saturate it with lukewarm water-detergent by dipping it in the bucket, and then rub it against the area of the vehicle that has remnants of the dried tree sap/pine sap left intact.

  4. Continue to rub the water-detergent saturated rag/cloth against the remnants until they wash off the vehicle.

  5. Finally, wash off the area of the vehicle with water sprayed with a garden hose.

  6. Apply the affected area of the vehicle, or the whole vehicle if you see fit, with one coat of wax.

Doing the above steps will restore your vehicle in no time to what it was before the annoying droppings of tree sap/pine sap.
