Reducer or Naptha works well for me......it shouldn't hurt the paint.

Goof Off, for plastics. The one I have is in an orange bottle. I acutally used the stuff to remove spray paint after last holloween. I sprayed it on and used elbow grease and a non scratching scrubbing pad for dishes. It worked like a charm, sap shouldnt be a problem either.

Goof off will work but be careful as I have seen it remove some types of paint also, test in a not so obvious spot. Definately use it outside and not in a garage, the fumes are potent.
