My son recently had a play encounter with a Pine tree full of sap and his sweater is full of it. I tried putting it in the freezer to freeze the sap so it would break off like gum does but nothing works. Can anyone help me?
I had fir tree sap on a nylon jacket and used rubbing alcohol to remove it. I saturated and squeezed the excess from cotton balls, rubbed the areas with the sap and they came right off. (01/04/2005)
I sat on an oozing porch railing in a borrowed nylon dress and was horrified to find a big glop on my backside! The wood ooze was sticky and had started to harden by the time I got home. I had borrowed the dress for a wedding.
I used that hand cleaner that mechanics use (Goop?) applied it to the stain and washed and it worked like a charm! No embarrassing confessions to the owner were required. (02/01/2005)

Try using sunscreen! Rub it in then rinse it out. (08/04/2006)
My husband had tree sap on his leather jacket. I was afraid alcohol or other chemicals would damage the leather, so I tried rubbing peanut butter on the spots, wiped off with a wet sponge, and all the tree sap disappeared--worked great! (12/09/2006)
