        Comments about Turtlewax Bug and Tar Remover Spray (16 oz.):

        This stuff works. It removed bugs and tar easily. It bug has been on your car for long time and completely dried out, then let it soak for a while. Otherewise, a few minuites is enough. It leaves a little wax behind, so it doubles as a quick detailer. It wasn't as good as car wash on bug removal, but perfect for between car wash. Also could use as prewash for bugs. Wipe clean just like you would with wax. Make sure you don't have coarse dirts before using this, dirt may scratch your finish.

        Only problem I had was it is hard to clean this off from small cracks between parts just like wax. But it dries clear and won't show much. (Just clean well on your next car wash)

        Because it leaves wax finish behind, I wouldn't use it for windshield. Use glass cleaner for that area. It may be ok for other glass. I had a little over spray on door glass, so I wiped it clean. It did leave slick surface, but don't see any stains or streaks. Will see how it does in rain.

          Had tree sap stuck on my car for a week! I let the bug and tar remover sit for 10 minutes and cleaned it off. With a little elbow grease it got every bit of it off!

              Comments about Turtlewax Bug and Tar Remover Spray (16 oz.):

              The product does okay removing tar. If you have a light colored car, it is noticeable that some stains definitely permeate into the clear coat. Once you wipe off the spray, you must rewash the area to get it thoroughly clean as it leaves a gummy residue. I only bought this product because it was on sale at the time I bought something else.

                Comments about Turtlewax Bug and Tar Remover Spray (16 oz.):

                I had extreme tar buildup from road resurfacing. The affected areas were on the bottom of the truck bed behind the rear tires.

                I sprayed this product on and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I went outside to have a look, there was tar dripping off onto my driveway! Amazing product. Wiped clean and the paint looks as good as new.
