    Sap Damage

    whats the best way to handle some sap on your tarp. I had some on mine over the weekend and I just put a piece of cloth on it so I could pack my tarp up without it sticking to the rest of the tarp.

    What kind of sap?

    For pine I think hand sanitizer disolves it.

    I've used tire cleaner for maple sap but that might be too harsh for silnylon.

    Goo gone is amazing stuff... realistically any solvent (alcohol, mineral spirits) will work... I don't know what will damage silnylon though...


    Heck, even cooking oil softens the stuff enough to wash it off... (I use that trick in the woods...)
