3 Easy Ways to Get Road Tar Off Your Car

Road tar is a mix of liquid asphalt and water. It’s used as glue on most road surfaces to seal off small cracks. This sludge mixture can stick to the underside of your vehicle or on your lower body panels when you pass over it.

Road tar can be harmful to your car if not removed quickly. It can ruin your vehicle’s paint, cause your tires to become stiff, and impact other parts on the underside of your vehicle.

Road tar hardens once it dries, making it difficult to remove if you just use soap and water. That’s why you need to get it off your car as soon as possible. Don’t worry, there are three easy ways to remove road tar, especially if it hasn’t dried off yet. Here they are:

1. Use WD-40

WD-40 is a household product that can effectively remove road tar. Spray the affected area with WD-40 and wait for a few seconds. The tar should easily come off when you wipe it with a sponge or cloth. Rinse the area with soap and water to wash off any leftover WD-40 residue.

2. Peanut butter

Spread peanut butter on the area stained with tar. Let it sit for 20 minutes so it can penetrate. Then, use a cloth to wipe it off. Repeat the process until all of the tar is gone.

3. Commercial tar removal products

You can find tar removal products on the market that are specifically for vehicles. They typically come in a spray can for easy application on the areas with tar. Here are three brands of tar removal products:

  • ProSol Bugs N All Bug-And Tar Remover
  • 3D Bug Remover Concentrate
  • E.S.T. Bug-Off Bug Remover


Tired of Maintaining Your Old Auto? Retire It Meaningfully This Way

Keeping a vehicle in tip-top shape isn’t easy. If you have an old car that you don’t use anymore, why not free yourself from the stress of vehicle maintenance?
