I fought the sap and the sap won

I've been working the past few weeks on my garden.  I tripled the size from last year and we're almost ready for planting.  I had a 4 foot square garden last year, this year I have 3 of them.  While I've been out in the yard I realized that our back yard looks so sad!  So I took my scrub brush and bucket out and went to town.  The backyard looks significantly better especially the crawl space door(which was crazy mildewy).  Our outside furniture has been scrubbed now but there is sap all over it, blech.  I cleaned off the benches on our back deck but now realize that we need to put a fresh coat of paint on.  Two steps forward one steps back is ok we're slowly getting the things done around here that need to be done.  No matter what things I see that need doing it still looks better than it did a few weeks ago!

Anyone have a suggestion for removing sap?

I think some of the products that remove the tar from your car will also take off sap, but I don't know how nice they are... WD40 will take a sticker left-over label off or peanut butter will take sticky off (gum from your hair) and perhaps cooking oil does,too. Just some things to try.

Pics please! (Of your newly scrubbed backyard, not the sap. Or the sap, too, if you want to.)
