Best solvent for cleaning tree sap off canvas tent ends?

Anyone know if there are restrictions from using something like Goo Gone to clean pine sap off our 1007's canvas tent ends? Any better solvent than Goo Gone you'd suggest?

I use Windex to get it off my windsheild but I don't know how it would work on the canvas.

I like Goof-Off, but it is nasty nasty stuff. I would try it on the skirting somewhere out of sight and that will not matter if the waterproofing is compromised. My gut feeling is it will remove the vinyl coating. As for a cleaning agent, I would consider using a product called “Spray Power” by Crown. I bought it at Menards about $6.50/gal and I have had very good luck with it. I have not used it on my canvas yet, but my parents have and they said it cleaned their awning effortlessly. But did they have to deal with pitch???
