From fender benders to making sure your registration is up to date and keeping the tank full…car owners have a lot of things to worry about.
That’s why when a bird poops on your windshield or you get tree sap on your pristine paint job, it’s really the icing on the already stress-covered cake. While the white goop is pretty easy to get rid of, you can pretty much forget about getting that sticky sap off…
Or at least that’s what I thought until I saw this genius tip on The Garage.
Come spring — and summer and fall, for that matter — trees have the annoying tendency to drip sap on your car.
Short of spending tons on specialized cleaners that often don’t work or scraping it off with your fingernails, there’s a super-easy fix!
Enter hand sanitizer! Believe it or not, this stuff is sap’s worst nightmare.
All you need to do is put a little drop on the sap.
Gently rub the liquid into the sap and it should dissolve before your eyes!
To remove any residue at the end, just dampen a cloth or paper towel and wipe the spot. Dry it off and you’re sap-free!
How great is that? You can stop worrying about parking under a tree for fear of getting dripped on! It’s time to make friends with the forest again.
