Remove pine tree sap

What is a good product or method to get sap off of the jeep and the softtop windows? Getting rid of the trees is not an option.

Olive Oil. Not sure what that would do on the softtop though. Went through a bottle of it after helping my brother cut down a tree on his property. Took the sap right off my skin without pulling out hair. Left my hair and skin silky smooth afterward too lol

I've had luck with my wife's fingernail polish remover. May take two or three reps to get it off.

I use hand sanitizer and a terry cloth. Helps to let it sit in the sun and get softened up first too.

Naphtha which is lighter fluid works great for me.

Never had that issue but definitely taking notes tho. If i was the OP i would be investing in a cheap complete SUV cover to avoid future problems if the pine tree isn't going away.
