Removes adhesives and tar
March 30, 2021
Preface, the only other adhesive removers I have experience with are goo gone and goof off. Since rediscovering my car care passion and good results with ONR I decided to try T.A.R. Label states it is safe for plastics, which during my research I found is not a common claim among competitive products. Admittedly the only plastics I have used it on so far are bottles though. I have also used it on Lexus OEM wheels and glass. I was able to remove my target contaminants (tar, and sticker adhesive) from a combination of spraying product, agitating, and additional applications as necessary. Use of ONR and microfiber and agitation removed remaining residue/product. If I were to classify the product fragrance in one work it would be "bananas". I am honestly hoping I would never need this product to remove rubber contaminants as visions of retread flying across the freeway come to mind.
