How to Remove Car Tar
Is there a clean up situation more annoying than getting out of your car to discover that it has been splattered with tar from a freshly paved road?
Most road tar stains are asphalt mixed with grease or oil. The longer they are on your vehicle, the more they will harden and bond with the painted surface, and they can be detrimental to your vehicle’s paint job if not removed.
Some common “kitchen remedies” to remove car tar include using butter, peanut butter, vegetable oil, mayonnaise, or bath oil. You’re supposed to apply these substances to the sticky areas, let them sit for 24 hours, to soften the sticky black stuff that has attached itself to your vehicle and then see if it’s soft enough to remove it.
Sounds like a great solution for removing tar from your car, truck or van… unless you don’t want to have to wait 24 hours, you don’t want a greasy, slimy food mess to clean off in addition to the tar, you’d like a solution that means less work for you, not more work.
In that case, here’s a better approach for How To Remove Road Tar From Your Vehicle In Three Easy Steps:
- Apply the area with Goof Off® Professional Strength
- Wait a minute or two while it dissolves the tar.
- Wipe it off.
Doesn’t that sound easier, quicker and better? We thought so!
