How to Remove Pine Tar From a Car


For those individuals who take great pride in the appearance of their motor vehicles, not many things can be more irritating than the ugly spots of pine tar that can accumulate on their vehicles. It truly is frustrating to discover these dark, sticky marks on what was once a perfectly detailed car or truck. However, the good news is that with a little bit of care and elbow grease, the ugly stains can be removed---leaving behind a clean, tar-free vehicle.

Things You'll Need

  • Goo Gone brand automotive spray gel
  • Soft cloth or rag
  • Bucket
  • Water
  • Soap
  • Car wax of choice
  • Apply a liberal amount of Goo Gone automotive spray gel to a soft cloth or rag.

  • Gently rub the Goo Gone onto the pine tar in a circular motion. Be sure to cover the tar completely.

  • Allow the Goo Gone to soften the tar for at least 3 minutes.

  • Rub the Goo Gone and the tar from the vehicle using a circular motion. Do not pry the tar from the vehicle as this could damage either the vehicle's clear coating or paint. If necessary, repeat the previous four steps until the tar is soft enough to be easily removed.

  • Wash the car to completely remove any excess Goo Gone from the vehicle. Pay particular attention to the areas where the tar had been.

  • Wax the vehicle, following the instructions on the package. This will help protect the car from future pine tar stains.
