Q: Could it remove stain from the exterior of the car the stain is like candy or egg???

submitted by Cecilia Hernandez - 6 years ago
  • A: We suggest trying MAX Power Car Wash at the extreme level or completely concentrated. If something more aggressive is needed to remove, Bug & Tar can be used.

Did exactly what I bought it for. I’m not sure what I drove through but I had grime dried on both front doors. I let the product sit for a couple minutes and everything came right off. It is a wax so it took two towels to get it off.

Not best. Requires a lot of nail and arm strength.

Three stars because I bought this product to get sap off of my car. Yes the sap had been on there for two weeks and this worked a little better than goo gone but it still requires an incredible amount of elbow Greece I don’t think a person over the age of 40- something may not have the strength needed to get the bare minimum results. I got the bare minimum results after following the instructions on the bottle exactly. Using a microfiber cloth it took a lot of power and repetitiveness to get away SOME of the marks. Finger nails and arms were killing from trying to scratch out the sap using this solution only for it to minimally work. I can’t say I recommend this product

Beware - removes trim coating along with the bugs

I used the Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Graphene Acrylic Trim Restorer (which works great and is the best for making the black plastic trim look like new. When I used the Bug & Tar Remover per the instructions on the front bumper plastic trim, it removed most of the black graphene coating and left it on the microfiber towel leaving the trim in need of more work. Both the microfiber towel and Bug & tar Remover are going in the trash

This product did not work any better than my car wash soap at removing bug gunk from my car. Plus, it leaves a greasy film on the car after use. Now I have greasy bug remnants on my paint job and I have to wash it again. Yay.

It is a very poor bug and tar remover. Totally useless product for its application. It is actually a wax. Only apply it with the towel you plan on discarding or cleaning with mineral spirits.

Did a great job removing black mold stains and bird droppings. It is very safe and very easy to use. I used on an older Lexus.

Ruins your towels

It did an ok job on bugs and a better job on tar. But it did a fantastic job of ruining my microfiber towels. This stuff is like spray-on furniture wax; no amount of hot water and soap could get my towels clean. So what seemed at first to be a good value turned out to be a costly lesson.

Got stuck on a newly oiled county road. My white Volvo was covered from front to back on both sides, as well as the back of the car, with a fine black mist. It dried by the time I got home. I tried a few cleaners but little Luck. I had a bottle of Turtle Wax Bug &Tar remover in my garage and sprayed it on a section, and let it sit for a minute. Then I wiped it off and WOW - all the oil came off with minimal effort!!! Took my anxiety down several notches!! I had all oil removed from the entire car within an hour! Also cleaned my aluminum alloy wheels which were also coated with a fine mist of oil. Great stuff!!

I recently took a bit of a splash into some fresh oil as a result of road work and was very disappointed to see the splats and stains that would not budge with a simple car wash or scrub. With a bit of this stuff and some elbow grease, my whole car looked even better than before! Highly recommend, especially for the price too! Definitely look forward to trying more turtle wax products in the future!

I was alittle worried it wouldn’t work based on other reviews but THIS STUFF WORKS! I commute everyday so bugs just love my car & regular soap doesn’t get them off. I let this sit on my grill while I washed the rest of my car and when I rinsed it off they all came off!
