Pay Attention Where You Park

Tree sap can cause damage to your vehicle, which is extremely difficult to get off. Wiping this glue-like substance will likely only spread it around and once it is baked on, deterioration begins. Some polish can remove this nuisance substance, but they can also compromise the mirror-like finish of a vehicle’s paint.
