Keeping Your Car Looking New — Protect Your Paint From Tree Sap

– Posted in: Car Care Tips

Beyond enhancing it’s resale value, your car’s paint job is your only line of defense against damage to the automotive body. And while the gorgeous Live Oaks and Longleaf Pines enhance your HOMES resale value; they can do serious damage to your car.

The problem? Tree Sap.

Trying to just wipe the clingy sap off when wet will only smear the gooey stuff. The only cure? A bottle of bug and tar remover from your local car parts store. If the sap has already dried? Get that can of mineral spirits out for the first step. Use a clay bar for the second step and finish with a wax treatment for your car.
