Rubbing alcohol! Just test an inconspicuous spot on the clothing first to make sure it's colorsafe. (12/15/2010)

Try WD 40. It works on all sorts of things, and may work for this. (06/02/2010)

My husband recently used his good paddling shirt to saw trees up. It was literally ruined by all the tree sap. I came in search of something that would remove the sap from his shirt. I figured the shirt was pretty much ruined anyways so decided to try 3 of the recommended products. I started with WD40, it "slightly" removed some of the stain. Next I tried the hand sanitizer and was more impressed with its removal. Then I tried the nail polish remover and it was "handsdown" the best product (all three products were tested on different areas of the shirt) I then applied the nail polish remover to the other two areas and it instantly removed the residual left over from the WD, and hand sanitizer. I'm so happy and impressed that this product worked the way it did, I'll be trying it on other products also! (06/27/2010)

Try some lighter fluid on a soft cloth. I had my pup get some sap on his fur last year and rubbed some baby oil on it and it came right off. Good luck! (03/25/2010)

I have used the hand sanitizer (soaked on sap stain) so I am guessing that alcohol would work also. (08/13/2009)

You can get stuff at the auto store for removing tar, bugs, and sap from car without damaging the paint.
I'd try that. I can't seem to find the name of the stuff though, but you can get it at Auto Zone and I think Walmart. I've used it on other things too and it was great. (08/17/2009)

I found the suggestion, I read some weeks ago on this site, of using rubbing alcohol a great solution. The resin just dissolves. I bought a bottle from eBay as I live in the UK and wasn't sure where I could buy it. (08/17/2009)
