What makes Bug & Tar Remover awesome

Removes Sticky, Stubborn Residue

Bug guts and sticky tar are some of the worst things for automotive paint. Flying insects contain corrosive chemicals that permanently damage paint if left unchecked. This versatile formula breaks down grease, tar, dried bugs, road film, and asphalt to prevent permanent damage. 

Gentle Formula Safe for all Surfaces

Bug & Tar Remover is safe for clear coat and single-stage paint finishes and removes bugs without damaging paintwork. It’s also safe on bumpers, windshields, headlights, plastics, chrome, grilles, painted surfaces, and more.
