How to Remove Tree Sap

On fabric: With a cloth, dab Guardsman dry-cleaning fluid onto the stain; let dry. Then immerse the stain for 30 minutes in 1 cup bleach-free liquid laundry detergent with a dash of ammonia. Wash in the warmest water safe for the fabric.

On the rug: For a wool rug, scrape off what you can with a spoon, then use WoolClean Dry Spot Remover No. 2. For a synthetic rug, apply Goof Off; blot with diluted dish soap. Wait a few minutes, then rinse with hot water, using a spray bottle. Blot dry.
