What can I use to remove tar from the outside door panels of my automobile?
By Joan from Russellville, AR
I use kerosene. Put a little on a rag and gently rub the places where there is tar and it will disolve and come off with no harm to the paint.
I used coconut oil. It worked well. Apply it with your fingers. After 30 s wipe it off with a clean cloth. At low temperatures it forms a solid film, but it is easy to remove, as the heat from your fingers makes it melt.
Don't know of any "home" things other than maybe kerosene. They used to sell a tar remover at local automotive stores like PepBoys, Hi Gear and Advanced Auto. they probably still due and the stuff worked great. At least it did back in '95. It was called Tar and Bug Remover.
Use Goo-gone. You can purchase it at Wal-Mart.
