Use Bug and Tar Remover to Save Your Auto Finish

Americans have a deeply-ingrained love for their cars, trucks, and other vehicles. At an early age, we learn that a car is not only a vehicle that transports us from place to place – but it is also a symbol of our personal freedom. This is something that we hold dear in America. Maybe that’s why America has dominated auto production for most of the history of the automobile.

A beautiful car is a beautiful thing. On a long drive – with no destination in particular – the cares of the world seem to float away with the breeze. We love our cars. As a result, we work hard to keep them in good shape. Any car or truck worth driving is something that deserves upkeep. We tune them and change the oil when needed. We maintain the appropriate air pressure in each tire to eliminate wear and maximize fuel efficiency. And, above all, we keep them looking sharp by washing and waxing them on weekends. On a warm summer day, a shining, spotless car is a thing of great pride, but anyone who spends time caring for their car or truck knows that it doesn’t stay spotless for long – and we’re not talking about raindrops and dust.

Bugs and tar are the enemy of your vehicle’s finish. Drive down a fresh strip of asphalt during a warm summer evening and you’ll notice two things the next morning: bug splatters all over your front grille, bumper, and hood – and sticky road tar all over your fenders and side moldings. Both present a problem for your finish and both can be a real chore to remove if you don’t have the right kind of cleaner.

First things first: Every car owner should know that bug guts are not only nasty in appearance, but are also highly acidic and need to be removed as soon as possible to save your paint and your finish from being slowly etched away. The same goes for bird poop.

Then there’s tar. If you’ve ever driven a freshly-polished car down a stretch of road that has been recently resurfaced, you know that your paint job is sure to be covered by a nasty mixture of asphalt, tar, and oils by the time you get back home. Tar is a tough thing to remove from the finish on your car or truck because it typically requires some kind of solvent to break down the oily, sticky composition so that it can be cleanly wiped away. Keep in mind that tree sap has many of the same properties. Sap is sticky and dries like glue (which is exactly how Ancient civilizations used tree sap in the past).

So, when it comes to removing bug and tar residue from your car – and saving your pristine finish from ugly spots and certain erosion – you can either spend hours scrubbing or you can leverage the power of a professional-grade bug and tar remover that’s powerful but easy on your finish. A pro-quality bug and tar remover (such as Lifter-1 Bug & Tar Remover) will break down the composition of road tar, bug residue, bird droppings, and tree sap and allow you to easily wipe the mess away. At the same time, the citrus components of Lifter-1 Bug & Tar Remover will be tough on the most stubborn road tar and bug residue without harming your finish.

In the end, we’ll drive down many roads in our trucks and cars, and at the same time, we’ll want to treat our cars with bug and tar removers that will keep them looking good on every weekend cruise – without risking the finish!
