Removing Road Tar from Your Car

Take road tar off you car by smearing it with butter. Leave on overnight and wipe it off in the morning with a rag. Good as new. My friend had bought a brand new car and took it on her first road trip and went thru some road construction. Her car was covered along the bottom of the doors. We used the butter and her car was beautiful again.

Thank you Katz, whoever you are! I was in despair over a very bad case of tarring picked up in France on my new (6 months) car. Tried other things with no real result at all. Thought, well, at least this butter business can't do any harm, so let's give it a go. Absolute magic! Thanks again.

You are awesome! This worked within minutes of gently rubbing on the butter. I'm going to share this with everyone I know.

Dude you are freaking AWESOME! My 6 year old son got out into our garage and got tar all down the driver side of my car. It was not pretty. I read your post about the butter so I decided to give it a try. Within minutes of me rubbing butter on my car I could see the tar coming off. Thank you oh sooo very much!
