tree sap

so while i was gone for a few days my wife decided to park under a tree. when i got home, i noticed there was ALOT of pollen on the car, so i ran my finger gently across the trunk, to check how smoothe it was from the last wax job, and i noticed theres alot of sap on the car.

its alot of tiny tiny flecks of dried sap, and they come off pretty easily.

i use a sponge that has a microfiber cover on it, when i wash the car.

if i use this sponge, and some regular car wash concentrate, to clean the car and remove the sap, will it take off the wax?

her last wax was last weekend, and it was a thick coat. shes garaged 99.9 percent of the time, unless shes in the walmart parking lot, my work parking lot, or i guess under the tree at my wifes friends house....

she says shell never do it again lol.

Claybar will take the sap, and the wax right off.

Try a spritz or two of the quik-detail spray. With that wax on there, the sap shouldn't be able to stick well enough to resist that and a microfiber. Granted you have to do the whole car, but it's better for peace of mind.

Hi iam a detailer i use a really good wax product it is called Finish Kare 1000p high temp paste wax if you put a few good coats of that on your paint the sap will not stick to your paint.

If I were you I would pick the sap by spraying it with qd and mf towel, than clay it down and polish. Lastly protect.

Tree sap can damage the paint and even wax and sealant. You can clay the affected part and check if there is still any sign of discoloration. To remove it you can use a mild polish or color sanding depending how deep the damage is. Just make sure to use the least abrasive method just to be safe.
