To clean tree sap from your driveway you will need a petroleum based hand cleaner(such as Goop hand cleaner and stain remover) a clean cloth or scrub brush, paper towels, and a hose or pressure washer

Step 1
Apply a petroleum based hand cleaner to clean cloth or scrub brush. The water-less hand cleaner and degreaser called Goop is what I would recommend.

Step 2
Scrub tree sap applying cleaner as needed until all the sap has been scrubbed off.

Step 3
Wipe up the tree sap and cleaner with paper towels.

Step 4
Rinse with a garden hose or pressure washer.

Here is a link to the product I was talking about so you will know what to look for when shopping. They carry it at most Auto Part stores.  ysIeA&adurl=
