Does anyone know what takes tar off of cars? I recently got a little bit on mine & can't remember what I read about it. It was a non-chemical/toxic solution.
Try peanut butter
Not exactly non-toxic, but I've used carburetor cleaner. Jayne.
I have used skin so soft from Avon and it worked great.
Thanks guys! I love this forum. I thought it was a food & I think peanut butter was it. If it doesn't work, I'll try the skin so soft.
spray on WD 40, it'l take it right off, might have to do it a couple times.
Since I am outside anyway, fumes is not an issue with me ... gasoline on a wrag will take it off.
Many years ago a friend of mine and I were double-dating a couple of girls and the road to their homes was being paved. We were in my friends dad's brand new Pontiac and got tar all over it. We took it off with kerosine, but then had to wash it immediately with soap and water to keep from messing up the paint.
Whatever you use, be sure and wash the car with a good car wash soap and water when you are finished. If you don't do this the paint will suffer.
Thanks guys! Great info!
Coke is supposed to work. I have never tried it so can't guarantee it. You can buy Bug and Tar remover from a hardware store and it does work good.
I'll try the bug and tar remover and let you know, my white car has this globs on it, as if the worker on the road swung a full mop at the whole side! What a mess.
Avon works great.
Peanut butter worked wonderfully
WD40 works great, I just bathed my torent in it this week because I ran over a spilled bucket of tar. Doesn't seem to affect the wax job so far.
I just had one little spot and peanut butter took it right off.
sticky stuff remover works well
