I recently discovered a small spot on our couch that appeared to be pine sap from our kids playing outside. Using a cotton ball, I dabbed and gently rubbed rubbing alcohol onto the spot. It very quickly started to disappear. I then let the couch dry. There was a slight water ring type spot left behind that came off easily with a baby wipe. Now there is no sign of any pine sap being on the couch. Yay!

Sap dripped off a piece of wood (2 x 4) board onto our new microfiber couch. How can we remove the spots?

How do I clean Christmas tree sap (resin) from a microfiber sofa? The Christmas tree fell on top of the microfiber upholstered sofa and when some of the branches broke it drained sap on the sofa and stained it. How do I remove the stains without creating water rings?

Have you tried a nail polish remover, probably the non acetone one. (11/29/2006)

I had the same problem. A book recommended glycerin. Don't bother. Use the rubbing alcohol. It worked immediately. (12/13/2006)
