How can I remove pine tree sap from my car?

Hello there passionate Jeep owners! *waves*

er... it's summer time = vacation time again... and yet I still have traces of pine tree saps from last year's vacation on my Peugeot. And despite our neighbor's suggestion to use alcohol to remove it, I didn't dare do it for I was afraid of its effect on the paint. So up to now, we haven't found the "miracle product" that can really remove them.

The problem is, this time, we'll be using the Compass, same thing -- the rented chalet is surrounded by pine trees. And my solution so far is to cover it.

Do you know of a certain product that can remove saps from windshields and paint? Any suggestion or any "hocus-pocus" thing is highly appreciated.

That does work miraculously Webmaster, and now that they have the liquid version, a lot less elbow grease.
