Ok, I know this is rather embarassing, but I need some advice on how to remove tree sap from my upholestry. The boat sat underneath a pine tree for no longer than 5 minutes and now I have a few spots to contend with.

Try rubbing alcohol or Off bug spray.

Good luck- no advice but wanted to see what the "cure" was. Keep us posted.

Let us know how it turns out. I got a spot on my engine cover and have not been able to completely remove it. I have been able to lighten it with Oxy Clean and bleach mixed into a paste and left in the sun.

I use the miracle can of WD40. spray on let set for a minute thenuse a finger nail to scrub it off. I use it on my cars all the time since I have a couple of pine trees 100' tall that just ooze the stuff on a hot day. don't let it set there too long or it is harder to get off.

If it's dry will it just pull off. If not try a degreasing hand soap. I have had good luck with Goop orange on my hands when nothing else would touch pine tar. ??

Back in Georgia we learn NOT TO PARK under pine trees :rolleyes:
And if absolutely nessecary - COVER IT~
Ask lanier92prostar about tree sap, I'm sure he's had his share.
