Climbing a pine tree today, my son got sap on the back of his pants that transferred to leather seat.

I tried some Armor All Leather cleaner, but the sap just laughed. I know I don't want to use any solvent based cleaner, or alkyline based cleaners.

Any recommendations?

Leather cleaner from the auto store, or a bit of WD-40 on a rag....

first of all, get your belt, hit kid hard so he cleans the sap, if the sap is not gone, hit again until the sap is gone!:twak: good luck!

or a bit of WD-40 on a rag
This works great for sap and other sticky stuff on the leather seats.

When you do this, always follow it up with cleaning the WD-40 off with a
clean cloth and a gentle soap made for car interiors like Mopars Total clean
or equivalent.

Then, follow that up, once its dry, with a good leather conditioner.

Even though the factory says you don't need any conditioners on our leather
seats, it will help in the long run to keep the seats looking good, and lasting
longer.

DO NOT use anything abrasive for this!! You can actually spread the sap
around and cause more damage.

Just be glad your son only had sap on his pants, and not a stick or some
other object sticking out of his pocket that could have poked a hole in the
seat!!

Now that is strap to the hiney stuff there...

Results:

Magic Erasor = No Go. Sap was dried by the time I got to it.

WD40 = Worked, but took some scrubbing. Followed with a clean damp rag "rinse" and a leather conditioner.

thanks for the follow-up Jim... many folks, including me, are a bit hesitant to use wd-40 on leather, but when we see positive results it sure helps. Even an old supporting vendor detailer recommended that for ink and other leather stains...
