dryer sheets...... i know it sounds crazy but trust me it works. they only work far enough to do one area the size of a headlight so use LOTS.

"deep woods off" (bug repellent) is what I use. It's crazy what that shit will take off without hurting the paint. Great for tree sap too.

dryer sheets wont hurt the paint either but it does cause serious streaking on the paint if you dont get all of the residue off. tree sap: i heard if you let it dry up ( scrape it off with your fingernail or something like that) or if its fresh do like 1/4 water 3/4 vinegar mix. but i dont want to try it. because it doesn't sound good for the clear coat.

Thumbs up

Try some brake cleaner on tree sap or hard to get off marks on your car. rub light and then clean off with soap and water and it will look great
