Tar is often found around wheels and on the lower part of your vehicle as a result of pieces flinging up from asphalt roads. It doesn’t cause particular damage to your paintwork but it leaves ugly black spots which are famously difficult to get rid of! Our tar removers work to lift the tar spot from the surface, allowing it to be wiped away with a clean microfibre or blasted off with a pressure washer or hose.

So, how do you use a tar remover? You should wash the vehicle first using your usual routine – snow foam followed by shampoo – to remove most of the dirt from the area. Spray the tar spots with the remover and allow it to work for a few minutes, you should see the tar spots ‘running’, this looks like brown streaks trailing down from the black spot of tar. Rinse off the tar remover or use a soft, clean microfibre to wipe away the area. You can repeat until all the black dots are gone.
