To get tree sap off of indoor wood furniture, try using a commercial product such as Goo Gone, Goof Off or WD-40. For a homemade solution, you can try using vegetable oil or mayonnaise. Rub the cleaning product gently into the stain to loosen it, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe off (or follow the manufacturer's directions). If this doesn't work, you can try using mineral spirits. Remember to always test a cleaning product in an inconspicuous are first.
I never thouht this would work..but it did! I brought some greens inside to decorate my side board. They made such a mess..sap everywhere. Our side board is gorgeous and I was sick over it. I was afraid to use any chemicals on the wood, so I found this homemade cleaning mixture! Boy, was I lucky! It worked and no one can even detect there was ever a mess! Try it ,you will no regret it!
