Tree Sap?

My car is absolutely covered in Tree Sap (Black 2014) and I am looking for a product that will help remove this? I know there are lots of DIY methods but I would honestly prefer not to damage my paint! Does anyone know of any products that can help this? Thank you!

Goo Gone is what I have used in the past. You will want to wax your vehicle after, but that goes for any product harsh enough to remove sap.

Always auto variant and Goo Gone is great stuff for road tar, bugs, etc.

Tree sap is extremely acidic, just as bad as bug guts and bird poo. Always get it off as soon as you find it.

I try to always wash the car, but the issue is when it rained the car got covered

Thanks everyone! I use goo gone for the most of it and then clayed the car and waxed it again!
