Default How to safely remove tree sap?

My apartment is surrounded by friggin pine trees and half of my car is riddled with this crap, what is the best way to remove this stuff and not damage my paint? I'm thinking about using Goo-Gone, any other options?

Just plasti-dip it.

I've used goof-oof/goo-gone/etc and it didn't mess up my paint. I don't really have nice paint though so do it at your own risk.

3M adhesive remover...you can get it at any auto store, autozone, oreilly autoparts, pep boys, etc... i have a can i picked up, works amazing, and it says removes tree sap on it. perfectly safe for your paint also.

I know you're gonna think I'm a crazy person, but bacon grease will. Lol. You know, if you're all southern and have a pan o' grease chillin.

That F1 cleaning wax work freakin wonders. That stuff will take it off. Let it soak for a minute and bingo. I love that shit. It'll even take the yellow off your headlights too.

This always worked purty good for me. Rain-X. if the sap is still sticky it will come right off. if it is hardened, use a dime and lightly scratch the surface till there is a little void where you can get some rain-x under it. dont know know why it works but it does. you dont have to apply hardly any pressure and use cotton balls. it works awesome for road tar also. afterwards put some wax on the spots and you wont notice where it was. i detailed cars for almost 6 years back in the day and also detailed at a car dealership.
