Sap remover

My '09 was under some trees that dropped some seeds/sap on the hood. I didn't notice it at first but now it's dried and hard. What's a good product to remove the spots without messing up the paint job? Goop Off says it's work but not sure about the paint. Thanks.

I have used fingernail polish or mineral spirits on cotton balls or terry cloth. After it comes off... I used a mixture of baking soda and water to clean the affected area. It's best to apply wax after the cleaning. I have never had any leftover marks remain.. always looked good as new.

Thanks. Getting colder here so I'm probably going to wait until spring. Plus, that'll give me a some time to find/review all options.

Wood alcool works good ( I park under a spruce tree ).The wood alcool disolves the sap right away, just make sure you use a very soft cloth and soak the stain away avoiding rubbing too much.You will have to rewax the spot .The other option is to leave it alone and it will eventually dry up and go away by itself after quite a while.

Goo Gone works well. I would not leave it on your Paint. Sap is very acidic and will etch your clear coat.

Thx all. I'll give Goo Gone a shot since that's what I have handy in the house.
