Removing Tree Sap from Canvas

Has any hybrid or pop-up owners had to remove pine sap from the canvas on their trailer. I opened up my ends today and saw some sap drops on the canvas that I must have missed when I put it away for winter. I have searched the net and there are plenty of suggestions like Isopropyl Alcohol, hand sanitizer, WD-40 and even mayonnaise. I would really like to know if anyone has tried any of these or had success with other products without damaging the canvas.

I have used peanut butter; a small amount on the sap itself causes it to dry up the sap; then it can be carefully popped off of the canvas. It works on other sticky stuff too, like bubble gum on seats or carpet.

Peanut butter, haven't heard that one yet but i might be willing to try it first since it shouldn't hurt the canvas at all. Thx

I've never heard of it either but you really want to be sure to get rid of any residual Peanut Butter Smells which could attract unwanted bugs/rodents.

Never really thought about the bears, and we do go to bear country in Northern Ontario. Ok, peanut butter might be out.

Rick Danger, did you use Turpentine on the canvas with no damage to it. That was one of my first thoughts to remove it but was worried it would damage the canvas. The sap is pretty hard since it sat through winter.

Might try GooGone. If you try anything with petroleum distillates, wash with soap after.

I havent used turps on canvas persay, I just know its a solvent for tree sap. Test it on an inconspicuous spot. A small amount in some corner. Its not a very caustic solvent like laquer thinner or anything, I cant see it harming the canvas

Mineral Spirits will do the trick. Think it's the same thing as turpentine mentioned in an earlier post
