I am looking for something to take off tree sap that has dripped on my car's windshield. I have tried everything.
April from MO
Just today my husband took some plain rubbing alcohol and poured it generously on paper towels, then he rubbed. Lots of rubbing while the alcohol penetrates the spots. Several came off right away and some it took several applications.
Next he washed the cars. They are shiny clean with no spots. And it is cheap. A large bottle of alcohol costs less than a dollar, He used about a quarter of the bottle on all the spots. (09/02/2006)
Then cover your windshield with something, a tarp, or get out from under them trees!
Good luck. (09/03/2006)

How do you get sap off a car windshield?
By jo-jo from Melrose, MA
I use an adhesive cleaner. Or you could try any paint thinner for getting tree sap off the windshield.
We used to get pecan sap on our car windshields. Coke-a-cola would take it right off. Just be sure to wash it off when done.
