oh! I've had this happen before! I don't even remember if I was able to get it out... If I did it probably wasn't a very natural method. Probably Dawn dishsoap to get the oils out or something. :

I hope you find something that works!

This is what worked for me.

I put the item in the freezer overnight and then gently scraped off the larger globs of sap with a knife. Then I used rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball or old toothbrush to remove the rest. Be sure to check it in an inconspicious area that the rubbing alcohol will not discolor it.

so happy to be alive. . .with one lovely husband , one boy , one girl , and three fish : . : :. peace one day.

Sap is a pain! I've used Goo Gone to get it out but I don't know what's in that stuff.
