Lamp oil for tar removing?
Posted 05 April 2012 - 09:01 AM
I got a tip (from someone that works on detailing cars) that ordinare lamp oil was a very good, "easy to use" and "cost effective" product to remove the tar and dirt that is stuck on the side of the car after a long winter (to be used after washing, and before polishing). Just put some on a cloth and wipe the sticky dirt off, and then rinse off with water.
Anyone heard about this before, and /or any comments on this?

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I do have AG Tar Remover but must admit it does no better a job that ordinary white spirit.
White spirit; that's what I use too. Cheap.

Main thing though, remember that any such product will also strip any wax protection you have on there, so remember to get it on again

Hi Arne, moved this to Spit & Polish as Juicy's forum is only for her to promote her own services and products, and your query is more generic / unrelated.
Thanks Six - my fault

I presume that the "lamp oil" you refer to Arne is what we call parafin
It does contain a lot of parafin, so that might be correct.
