    I stupidly parked my car under a tree and I have sap all over the bonnet... Anyone know the best method for removing this?

    Thanks!

    When my eldest had tree sap on his cloths and hair we used bicarbonate of soda mixed in with water and that took it out. But I'm not sure if that would damage the paint using it.

    Don't use a chamois, you'll scratch the paint! :)
