Plain simple hair shampoo that comes in one rupee sachet had worked for me pretty well. Empty the sachet into a bucket of water (2 litres) and wash with soft cloth soaked in this soapy water. A clean simple old vest works well as a soft cloth.

Tar stuck on the lower body cannot be removed using just shampoo. You need something to dissolve the tar, and shampoo does not do that.

Default Re: How to remove Coal Tar.

Team,

Am planning on a TAR removal activity this weekend from my car , its not only a few concentrated areas but the overall sides and also the bumpers which are feeling rough to the touch , so am assuming that there are miniature TAR spots all over the car body except for the roof which seems to be smooth.

Now am having a can of Turpentine at home and was thinking of using this to remove the TAR , has anyone used turpentine before ?

cheers

Use Diesel. Don't use turpentine.
