Greenway's Tar B Gone is the easiest, safest and most effective way to remove tar, silicone, polish, sealers and other road grime from the exterior of your vehicle. Tar B Gone has a special blend of solvents that quickly cleans, removes and prepares your vehicle for polishing and waxing.
How To Use
Greenway’s Tar B Gone is an excellent product to use before or after the wash process. While using Tar B Gone before the wash process is sometimes frowned on by the professional detailer, Tar B Gone used before the wash process can eliminate wash mitt and clay bar contamination. Much of the tar and other contamination is most likely located on the lower portions of the vehicle body. By using a high-pressure wash to remove any severe debris off the vehicle surface, you can quickly determine what is tar and what is not. Black in color vehicles makes it harder to see the tar, so we always recommended using Tar B Gone on these lower panels before a clay bar ever makes contact. Once tar is embedded in a clay bar, we suggest to discard the clay bar as the tar will be impossible to remove and can cause cross contamination and paint defects.
Tar B Gone can be sprayed onto a rag and then rubbed onto the surface, but be aware that much of the product will be absorbed into the rag and not allow Tar B Gone to be as effective. We suggest for MOST surfaces that Tar B Gone be applied by misting the product onto the surface and dwell for a few seconds. Most users are too quick to remove the product in fear and impatience. Tar B Gone is perfectly safe on surfaces that have FUCNTIONAL clear coat and are not damaged by improper maintenance.
The type of towel combined with Tar B Gone will also make a difference. Tar B Gone combined with a terry towel will provide exceptional cleaning but will leave micro swirling due the aggressiveness of the fiber. Combining Tar B Gone with a microfiber cleaning cloth, will provide a gentler cleaning effect. We also suggest using one our bug blocks or a plastic razor blade for extreme tar and paint removal situations. A bug block will provide the greatest amount of agitation to the vehicle surface, while the plastic razor blade or decal scraper can knock of top layer of tar or line paint. Many of these options might require light polishing after the removal due to the surface defects now created. Many of times the bigger problem (tar and road paint) will be removed and you are left with slight marring or paint defects from your chosen solution. This is completely normal and that is why we ALWAYS suggest starting from the least aggressive method of cleaning to the most aggressive method of cleaning. Listed below is our opinion of the least aggressive method to the most aggressive method of procedure.
We suggest to ALWAYS follow up with a wax or sealant after the use of Tar B Gone. Tar B Gone will strip many sealants and waxes off the surface and leave the surface with no protection left. This can cause issues in the near future with clear coat failure. Depending on the method chosen above, light polishing by machine or hand could be necessary to remove minor defects that are more noticeable in darker color vehicles. Not all SIO2 coatings will be affected by the use of Tar B Gone. Typically, the SI02 coatings that are a spray and wipe application can be removed with Tar B Gone.
