While spraying some rubber undercoating on my truck I missed and got it on the paint. I tried everything and then thought of a TV show that said use peanut butter. So I gave it a try and it worked. I put it on and let it sit for 1 min then used my finger and rubbed in a circular motion and the tar came off!!!

Another option is to use Stoner's Tarminator, which seems to work well (from what I've heard.)

A clay bar also would do the job. Glad you found a way that worked.

Well I have heard of lots of uses for peanut butter, but getting tar off the car, now I have heard everything, so guess what I am doing tomorrow, have some stubborn dots of tar that have refused to come off since getting the car last year.

Need to pick up a couple of items this week, once I finish all the last of the assignments I have, so will pick up some of that too.

I wonder what would happen if I mix peanut butter and wd40..........

Anyway I was going to say that we celebrate Fathers Day in September in Australia,

So I just want to wish all those many dads that read this site all the best for Father's Day. Pray that you all have a blessed time with all of your families.
