    White spirit.

    It's basically a glue, any solvent glue remover will do.

    Sounds like insect plop. Always very difficult to shift with a WFP brush alone.

    Its not varnish? Little insects yellow bits, dont come off, without a wee rub with a finger, quite annoying.

    you can buy tree sap remover-but this only works if its this years sap. cos after a year it sortof hardens but not rock solid. amongst the worst to remove is poplar tree sap , a burgundy colour .
