Fast Fix with Meguiar’s Heavy Duty Bug & Tar Remover

9 February 2021




If you’re one to put serious miles on your odometer, then bugs and tar are two swear words in your vocabulary, especially during week-long events when you’re trying to keep it clean for those photo opportunities each day. Removing these contaminants as early as possible is the best way to ensure you don’t damage your paint, which is why something like Meguiar’s Heavy Duty Bug & Tar Remover can come in handy, as it can be used as a waterless solution to the problem if needed. Like most Meguiar’s products, the application could not be easier — you simply spray on the affected area, and don’t stress about overspraying, as it’s safe on all paint and exterior trim surfaces. Leave the foam to soak in — it has great dwell time on the panel, leaving it to rehydrate the bugs and loosen tar. Leave for a minute before either rinsing off or wiping off the residue with a clean microfibre, if you’re just pulling up to the car show and have no water on hand. 

We like the hands-free approach, as it will lessen the chance of the contaminants damaging your paint work while trying to manually loosen with a brush or sponge during washing. We typically apply Meguiar’s Heavy Duty Bug & Tar Remover after rinsing the car during our normal grooming process.
