I'm doubtful on this, but how about soaking it good with a plastic cleaner and after a few minutes "agitate" the spot with a sponge?
Anyone know how to get tree sap off of plastic skylight bubbles safely? I have tried soap, water, hot water, goo gone. These are clear plastic skylights. can't scrub them with anything abrasive cause they will scratch. Just my wet surgical-towels.html?SID=t0i2ia2634hs353rcmkkmuniq0">huck towels were starting to scratch them with hardly any pressure. any suggestions? thanks

I have heard turpentine can be used to remove tree sap from various surfaces. I've never tried myself, and I don't know of the hazards involved.
Seems like some sort of alcohol based product would take it off. As an artist I make my own medium for oil painting and turpentine and tree sap are part of the main ingredients. The turpentine dissolves the sap so I would agree and say try the turpentine, just be sure to wear gloves and don't breath the fumes.
Although I don't know what effect it will have on the window. Maybe do a test on something else first.

Normally I don't touch these sort of things but some how this time I got suckered in. I will check out plexi clean........I am wondering if the oil flow stuff would work?

I've yet to find anything that works - just rubbing these skylights with a cloth scratches them.
