believe it or not, butter works great on fresh sap.

One thing to try out too is a quality cleaner-wax, meaning a good wax with a light cleaner abrasive on it just rubbed in on this solid and see what happens. It will not hurt the clear but it may get the residue left from the sap.

Diluted Dawn dishwashing detergent. I use this- usually once- on every car I own or detail to take off all the old wax and start over.

Rubbing Alcohol will dissolve pine tar...

Small amount of rubbing alcohol to dissolve the pine sap, then wash normally.

Use rubbing alcohol! it works great, that and some elbow greese with a microfiber, then a clay bar!
