Pine tree sap: how do you remove it? Soft, hard, that stuff is very difficult to remove without scratching the paint!

I have tried metho and citrus cleaner with no luck. Any miracle cures out there people?

Cheers, Mike

warm water.. the stuff is like thick honey or wax, I'm not taking scalding hot but a bit more than luke warm.. you will need a fair bit but it melts slowly and leave no trace unless it has mulbruys in it. then your screwed

After looking at some of the links in the article, I tried good old WD40 and it works!

Cool. Is that a citrus-based cleaner? Anything that will get the BBQ clean too is a bonus :)
