Tree sap on seat

I have a small blotch of what feels like tree sap on my passenger seat. The car
Has the Novello leather.

What I have tried..

Leather masters cleaner (was able to get some off)
Soft towel with really warm water (more came off)

There is still a small blob the size of a dime that doesn't want to come off and I'm afraid To scrub hard.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Yes... "tree sap"........

In all seriousness though, maybe take a pic as this would maybe make it a little easier to give you some advice.

The big question is...
How comes tree sap on your passenger seat ?
Don't see a butt in a tree....

I have "sap" on my seats as well from all the dabbing we do in the car. Sap has that oily consistency similar to cannabis oil. Would always recommended trying rubbing alcohol/iso-propyl (warmed) if possible. Little bit on a Q-tip and agitate it.

But please try in an inconspicuous spot first to determine if it will take some color as well just incase.

Don't want to end up like that guy using toothpaste on his steering wheel or seat (I can't recall) and end up peeling everything off.. haha.

Good luck bro.

Before I read your posts I picked up some stuff see pic 1. Pic 2 is before I cleaned most of it came right off with the cleaner. It's good stuff. There's still a small area that looks stained but it's not noticeable unless you look really close. so I'm going to repeat and then try rubbing alcohol if that doesn't work. Thanks for your responses.
