Does anyone have a safe method for removal of dried tree sap from canvas convertible top? I have a spot about the size of a nickle which is resistant to canvas cleaners so far. Any solvents that is fabric and color safe. GM canvas - black top. I have Amazing Rolloff which did a great job on the entire top except for this dried sap. :(

Use denatured alcohol and an old toothbrush. After treating each sap spot, blot up the excess alcohol with an old tee shirt. Wash again with Amazing Rolloff to remove any remaining residue. Treat with 303 Hi-Tech Fabric Guard.

Thanks. It is 75* now and when I get off it would be a perfect time to clean the spot. I have de-natured alcohol. I am going with the RaggTop protectant which is recommended by Haartz which manufactured my top.
Thanks again DavidB for the quick a response.:xyxthumbs

Thanks David B. The method you prescribed worked like a charm. Removed the sap without any fabric or color damage.
I am letting the top dry today and if I'm not overwhelmed by this 80* weather and tempted to go cruising this afternoon I will spray on the RaggTop protectant. The Amazing Rolloff really lifted the dust from the fabric and the alcohol dissolved the sap.
