    Hey all.

    Wanted some advice on how to deal with some tree sap on I got on my Sunroof and the glass part that doesn't open.

    Not sure of the kind of tree but needless to say I have about 10 spots of sap on the roof.

    Here is what I tried...

    I first washed it with a high quality mitt and I used Meguiars Gold Glass in warm water. Got some of the very heavy stuff off but still a lot left over.

    Went to a claybar and lube and got more off but there still is noticeable "dots" of where the sap fell or maybe "rings" might be a better word to describe.

    I am going out right now to try Dawn and some warm water, failing which I have a few options...

    I have DA polisher and I was thinking Meguiars D300 and a micro fiber pad but I was worried I might ruin the glass roof, so before I got to aggressive, I thought I'd solicit some opinions.

    Any thoughts???

    This happened on my old car. Rubbing alcohol got rid of it

    If it is on the glass only, Goo-B-Gone

    No issues with the glass roof with either product?

    Found some hand sanitizer lying around. Gave it a shot. Worked perfect!

    Thx.

    I was to say, hand or dish soap does the trick as well. Glad you got rid of it.
