    Hand cleaner as tar remover! You gotta see this!

    I’ll have more pictures and write up later, but somebody at advanced auto told this owner to use hand cleaner to remove the tar!

    When I saw the picture I was thinking Lava bar soap too

    I’ve got some pumice stones, I bet that will take off tar too!

    Re: Hand cleaner as tar remover! You gotta see this!

    We’ll never know what this owner was told. There are cream style cleaners that use a gravity fed pump dispenser (consistency of yogurt). These have zero abrasives in them that work very well at cleaning hands and I have seen guys use this on tar both on cars and and clothing. Goop is an example of this cleaner. We always had a dispenser of this type soap and a Boraxo dispenser side by side, you could clean with or without grit. No, doubt that cleaner was loaded with pumas.
    A society willing to trade liberty for temporary security deserves neither and will lose both

    I thought it was going to be the cow snot stuff (goop hand cleaner). Then I saw the picture. Obviously one of the cleaners with the abrasive grit in it.

    Nice save. Nothing like some pumice to even out the orange peel lol. Talk about rocks in a bottle.

    Ho-lee mo-lee.

    I suppose that’s the large scale version of people using their fingernail to scrape something off the paint?

    Nice recovery Mike! Guessing they’ll go a little gentler in the future...
