If you use a product that claims to remove tar from car, just follow the instructions and it should work pretty well.
if you try cleaning tar off of your car with really “acidic” cleaners or solvents, it'll permanently damage the finish and cause rusting. the only safe way to clean tar is use soap mixed with water. for smaller spills, do not dry but remove what can be removed then wash (do not rinse) with paint thinner, then wash again with detergent and water mix before drying.
how do you get dried tar off a car?
good question. personally i'm not sure, but most people use something like oven cleaner to remove dried tar that's on exterior paint. it does have chemicals in it so you need to follow all safety precautions and be careful with the application process.
if you're trying to remove tar off of car upholstery or rubber, then unfortunately i can't help you since i don't know how to remove dried tar from those surfaces either. sorry!

how do you get tar off a car without damaging paint?
tar removers are generally cheaper than they were a few years ago, but they also work slower. a tar remover is most effective when applied hot and then heated with a blowtorch or air blower for 5 to 10 minutes. they say that all you need is patience and i tend to agree because tar removal takes time.
another way of removing the tar from your car's exterior is by using dish soap and water mixed together in equal parts followed by gentle brushing horizontal strokes until the tar was gone. make sure to rinse thoroughly afterwards so as not ruin any paint on your car! you can do this once every 3 months so it doesn't take shape again after rinsing off any excess soap left behind.”
what is the best tar remover for a car?
if you are looking for something that will remove tar effectively without leaving residue on the exterior of your car, i recommend simply orange tar & road hazards.
the product is effective at removing sticky tar and it is gentle enough to be used on the exterior of cars. it's also budget friendly. some products don't mention that they can't be used in conjunction with a car scrubber, so this product is neither harsh nor abrasive. therefore it helps protect your vehicle from being scratched by any type of scrubbing media.
after using simply orange tar & road hazards my hands were still soft unlike when i use other products which often have chemical residues which dry out ones skin since most are about half as expensive but contain all
is wd-40 safe on car paint?
wd-40 is a light oil. it will make the paint slippery and degrade the shine. wd-40 always leaves a film behind too, which not only can leave a funky surface finish but also attracts dust as it builds up as time goes on. in addition, as dirt attaches to the dried wd-40, harmful acids from airborne pollution also latch onto it increasing exposure of these pollutants to car surfaces that are already highly vulnerable. all in all, it's not recommended for use on cars or motorcycles!
