WD-40 or cooking spray, you need an oil based substance to work under it. For glass, I use Bon Ami or Bartenders Friend cleaning powder. Both clean without abrading the glass.

Thanks for the ideas. I have found that Goofoff was always a step behind me, so I'll stay away from that one.

Looks like I have my work cut out for me.

Ordinary vegetable oil works on tar and sap. It's cheap, too!

Gel hand sanitizer on a cotton ball. squirt it on the cotton ball and then let it sit on the sap spot for a few mins and it will wipe right off.

Turpentine
Have use it for years on painted surfaces and awning. Works like a charm and does not hurt painted surfaces, awning fabric or rubber membrane roofs.

They make a product called Goo Gone which is good for removing glue. I don't know if it would work for tree sap but, it would be something to try. I would try it out in a inconspicuous place first to make sure it doesn't damage the paint.
