Can anyone tell me how to get dried tree sap off of car windows? It is interfering with the operation on of the electric window and will not come off with regular window cleaner. Thanks

Various recommendations from detail car people online as to what to recommend in order to get that nasty tree sap off your car windows.

Use the dish soap straight out of the bottle as do not dilute with water. The soap leaves a thin film between the surface and the razor which will allow the blade to slide very easily over the sap.

The folks at have a good demonstration on using cleaning products as well as the blade to get the sap off:
