Some types of trees make a habit of leaking sticky resin all over the place, and active dogs can have a thoroughly enjoyable time getting covered in the stuff. Dealing with the gluey combination of tree sap and dog hair is unlikely to be your idea of fun, but it is usually doable.
Along with sketchy mechanics, speed limits and faulty O2 sensors, tree sap is your car’s worst nightmare. Once it has marred your otherwise pristine paint job, the stuff just won’t come off. The good news is that there’s actually an easy way to remove the plant excrement.
Resin is a clear, sticky tree sap that slowly hardens when it is exposed to the air. Because it eventually dries to a shiny, solid coating, you can use it as a craft adhesive or a finish for wooden furniture. If your crafting job has left spilled resin sticking in your carpet fibers, act quickly to dissolve and remove it. The longer you leave it, the more solid it becomes and the harder it is to remove.
