    How to remove Pine Sap on Pavers?

    After major paver (Cambridge) work and a lot of tree cutting we have an incredible Pool area.
    But my wife is not a happy camper as some of the Pine trees that were trimmed are now ‘leaking’ on the new pavers! We were told that our Tree guy needs to put ‘Pine Tar’ on the open wounds & I have a call into him. The question is what’s the best method to clean the pine sap off the pavers?
    We have tried dish soap, simple green and right now rubbing alcohol seems to be doing the best job, but it’s not the cheapest root.

    Any suggestions?

    I would suggest de-solv-it contractors solvent from Orange-Sol.

    Try a test spot to make sure that the pavers are not discolored.
