Jim Hey there

there is a product that you get at an auto parts place called "purple power". it will get anything out and it also works on many different things. all you do is put a small amount on the spot and wash with your regular laundry.

or

Swab with acetone-based fingernail polish remover on a cotton ball, then rinse.
Note: Do not use nail polish remover (or acetone) on acetate fabrics, triacetate fabrics, or modacrylic fabrics as they will dissolve. Take these synthetic fabrics to professional dry cleaners and identify the stain.

NOTE: Nail polish also works really well for removing pine and other tree sap from car exteriors, paint, window glass and chrome. It quickly dissolves even very hardened sap without damage to the surface. Rinse the car's exterior well after removing the pine pitch or other tree sap.

or

Pick off what you can get off the cloth seat, then use some kind of solvent like wd40

or

I believe you want to mix vinegar & warm soapy water and rub with a clean cloth.... :-)

On clothes it works on almost everything that sticks (not stains) and washes out in the normal wash. We always have a little bottle near the washing machine.
