I have removed tar residue with WD-40. It will remove the gooy stuff on bottles and jars too. It will also knock a wasp out of the air and either kill it, or give you time to kill it.

The WD-40 will not hurt your paint on your car, so it is well worth a try.

Good luck,

I got hit by a basketball pole........and it happened exactly like it sounded.....I was in my driveway and started my car and the wind blew like extremely hard and the B-ball pole fell over and struck my car leaving a punishing black scuff mark and some little paint damage. but I tried everything to remove the black marks. Any tips? I know they will come out but how and with what!

help please!

depending on what the black marks are from, try using an eraser.

What is WD-40 - is it a degreaser? I am wondering which South African product would be a similar substitute.

Thank you!

Kind regards

Editor's Note: WD-40 is a spray on machine oil. Probably something similar would be sewing machine oil but in a spray bottle.

Live in the city. Someone took their boots to the side of my auto, leaving black scuff marks. WD40 worked like a charm to remove.
