Sap on my hood?!?

Hey guys... Just recently got a 2014 base model v6 with black paint. Somehow I got some sap that has hardened on the hood. How do I get this off? I don't want to clay bar it yet as it is a brand new car! My dad has suggested using butter once the sun has heated the sap up... Just curious what other fellow stang owners have done

Soap and water does just fine.

Yeah, you may have to wash it a few times but it should come off.

Goo Gone is, so long as you apply, scrub, and wipe off quickly. Just know it'll take the wax off in that spot, but as long as it doesn't sit, it shouldn't harm the paint/clear-coat. I've used it on my vehicles with no ill effects.

Why not clay bar? You'd be surprised how filthy they get just sitting in a car lot!
