The Sales Pitch from DoDo Juice:
Most tar and glue removers are pretty unpleasant to use, but not this one! Supernatural Tar & Glue Remover will do what it says on the label, and remove tar, rubber marks and most glue residues with ease – whilst being a pleasure to use.
It’s blended with pure, natural orange oil, and smells amazing. Whilst we wouldn’t recommend you inhale it deeply or smoke whilst applying it (it is still a very volatile solvent!) it does make tar removal a little more pleasant. Very handy for tar specks, rubber scuffs and sticker/vinyl residue. Just spray on and then buff the surface with a soft cloth until it is clean and dry.
What You Get:
Various sizes bottles, 100ml with a press spray, 500ml with a trigger spray or 5ltr refill container.
This product or solvent solition is designed to remove sticky residue, stuck rubber, or tar stuck to the car.
Spray on and wipe off and buff dry.
The product has a slight yellow tint to it and smells almost pleasant with the tang of citrus odour. There is a slight hint of some chemicals behind it, but they are masked well.
To apply is simple and the instructions says use sparingly. I had an old plastic spray bottle which I wanted to re-use. Typically the original label was permanent adhesive. To remove the label it tore and left that common tacky residue. I sprayed it onto the area with the label partially peeled away and also just the glue areas. A tough test for any remover.
Just wipe away the residue and buff until dry. Here are the before and after comparisons.
I also soaked the paper label and left it for a few seconds to soak in and it wiped off. Sometimes a second small spray is required to complete the clean up.
There was no greasy surface after application and dried quite quickly after buffing.
Brilliant. The label was removed within a minute or so. This will without a doubt remove sticky from anything. The smell was certainly not unpleasant but I would use it in a ventilated area.
Rating: 10 out 10
I was going to be very harsh and knock a mark of for the cost. In small bottles the cost is very expensive, the large refill makes great value for money.
Ease of use – 10
Finish – 10
The product works very well and can be used for multiple applications, inside the home and also for panel prep prior to clay bar or panel cleaning. A very versatile product indeed.
Buy the product in a larger bottle or buy it with a friend(s) and split it out to make it much much cheaper. Buying it the way I did in 100ml bottles would cost £350 for 5 liters. To buy the official refill of 5 liters is only £40
Would I recommend it? Yes, without a doubt.
Would I buy it again? Yes, but in a more cost effective way.
