I have numerous, fairly large brown blotches on my Accord from a tree that drops these little balls about an inch in diameter. I've tried Turtle Cut-N-Shine which has so far been perfect removing sap, tar, bugs etc., WD40 and IPA to no avail. It doesn't even put a dent in this crap.

Before I consider enlisting a pro, is there anything else I can try? Thanks in advance.

Hot water and dish soap? Shark steam mop?

It depends on the nature of the stain, I've also used Colemen's camping fuel, aka naptha with good results on petroleum based stains.

First off, the tree goes very soon. We're going to make it disappear. ;}

I found a solution after a little research. What worked perfectly was Downey fabric softener. Wet it, rub, wash, dry, reaply, wash, dry, wax.

Try EZ Off, the oven cleaner. I've heard it will take spray paint off of cars.

GOOF OFF will more than likely remove it.

give rubbing alcohol a try. it works wonders with tree sap but may or may not work with your situation

Close the thread then. :dunno:


He asked for solutions, and we gave them.

The solutions we gave could probably help someone else.

I used to see that everywhere in MD but never see it in GA. I wonder if it is a local item?

Na i think its just a hard item to come across, i looked every where and no one had it, walmart,target,grocery stores, home depot, no one! then i checked my local hardware store and they had it. It was a mission to come across but i found it eventually
