How to Remove Tar from Your Car

Tar is a sticky black substance used in road asphalt. If you drive over a recently patched pothole or a newly resurfaced road, there is a chance of splashing tar onto the underside of your car and wheel wells. When driving through an area where roadwork is being performed, tar could even get further up onto the exterior of your car.

Tar is a bit unusual in that it takes quite a long time to harden, but its liquid form is extremely sticky and difficult to remove. Fortunately, Tub O’ Towels can help. Our heavy duty wipes are engineered to remove even the toughest stains, including tar.
