Waking up in the morning to find your car covered in tree sap isn't exactly a great way to start the day. The sticky, gooey substance can drip onto your car when you've parked under certain trees in the summer time and feels nearly impossibly to remove. But we've got a great way to remove tree sap and all it takes is five simple steps.

First, soak a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Then, press the cotton swab against the tree sap and hold it there for two minutes. Next, rub the alcohol in a circular motion. Once the sap is no longer stuck on the surface, wash it away using one cup of baking soda and three cups of hot water. Finally, wash the car normally.
