I have sap on my windshield that my windshield cleaner plus a lot of elbow grease (and cursing) just cannot budge. It's on the wipers also so i think they may be shot (brand new of course).
Any ideas? I can't think of any more creative curses to scream.
Time and elbow grease got rid the sap on my car.

I used rubbing alcohol and a green scrubby on my Grand Am I had before my Balt and worked perfect

On the windshield just scrape it off with a razor blade. takes about 5 seconds. then follow up with some adhesive remover. I do this all the time at work and it works great. DO NOT use a razor blade on paint though. then just use adhesive remover alone.

We used to use a razor blade to get off the paint on the windshields that said 2.9% finance or whatever..... It won't hurt just saying

There's nothing wrong with using a razor blade on the glass. I've done it too many times to count because of decals, etc... If you hold it at a steep angle like Blaze said, and only push hard enough to get under and move it, you won't scratch the glass.

Razor blade (I would wet the window down with some type of glass cleaner first tho)

and an ultra fine steel wool.

Neither of these methods will harm the window. Perfectly safe.

easy. scrape it off with a razor, then rub off the residue with paint thinner on a rag. same goes for paint except with paint you have to be very careful with the razor, just take off the bulk with the blade and the rest will come off with thinner. paint thinner will not damage the paint.

all of this.

people with experience are all agreeing to the same thing.

This is true, I used a razor blade to remove one of those rear window things from the back window of my truck and scratched the crap out of the glass. You need to be careful with blades and glass.

Green pad and rubbing alcohol will work on minor stuff.
