A notoriously thick and sticky black substance, tar is used in road paving. If you step in it or get it on your hands, it can be extremely hard to remove. Fortunately, Tub O’ Towels is up to the challenge. Our heavy duty cleaning wipes are engineered to remove even the stickiest tar and are packed with ingredients to leave your skin soft and fresh.

Remember that tar can burn, so the first step should always be to cool the skin. Run cold but not icy water over the tar for 20 minutes, then remove jewelry from the affected area and let it finish cooling before tackling the stain. Seek medical attention if you have any signs of burns. Once it’s cooled, here’s how to remove tar from your hands or feet.

How to Clean Tar from Skin (The Hard Way)

Common remedies for removing tar focus on using a thick cream to soften it. Mayonnaise, medicated creams such as Neosporin, baby oil, butter, and petroleum jelly are among the most common recommendations. If you want to try one of these, here are the steps:

  1. Apply a thick layer of the product to the tar.
  2. Let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Use your fingers to gently peel off as much of the softened tar as possible.
  4. Mix up a mild soap and water solution.
  5. Use a washcloth or soft brush to thoroughly wash the affected area with the soap solution.
  6. Repeat as necessary until most of the tar is gone.
  7. Mix a baking soda paste or select a commercial exfoliant.
  8. Gently scrub your skin with the exfoliant, adding more product as needed until all traces of the tar are gone.
  9. Thoroughly wash the affected area with soap and water.
  10. Apply a bandage if needed to any raw or tender spots.

About Tub O’ Towels

So why are Tub O’ Towels wipes so much different from the rest? Here are the four major areas that set our wipes apart:
