Gary I have lots of pine trees around my place. I use methyl hydrate on a cloth and rub lightly. Works for me.

Novi,
What is methyl hydrate? Where can I buy it? Is there a Brand name I should ask for?

Gary, I think you can get it at a paint store. A Hardware store also should carry it. Or a builders supply store. Can't come up with a brand name you would recognize, sorry. It can also be used as a gas line anti-freeze and for cleaning windows. It is used to remove gum and resins. I get sap on my car and this is what I use, it does not hurt the finish, and takes sap off windows also. If you can find it, do not pour it on. Put it on a cloth and rub lightly.

Here in the States it is called methanol. It is highly volitile and burns with an invisible flame. You can find it in some hardware stores and it may be available at a reasonable price as Heet fuel line treatment.

If you light yourself on fire with methanol it will not be immediatly evident that you are on fire until your clothing starts to char so extreme caution is advised when using it as a cleaning agent.

Regards,

Good point Neil, it is very flammable and poisonous. Be careful.
