You might try a little baking soda using a rag slightly moistened first with water then with a few drops of vegetable oil. I just cleaned up a small quantity of tar from our new (and white!) laminate floor and white refrigerator handle. It came off incredibly easily and left no stain or mark.

RE: Removing Tar from House Siding

Mineral spirits should help remove the tar. I've seen it suggested for both wood and vinyl siding. You can buy it at the hardware store. (08/27/2004)

Always do a test spot. if your not careful your cleaner could melt the siding or fade the colouring of it. So test it first on a small area before you go crazy. Butter works for disolving tar as well. Is very safe on siding. Just make sure you get it all off or a dog or cat may start to lick your house. (04/27/2006)
