Works better than most wheels cleaners!

I use this to clean my Asanti Rims on my Cadillac. Because i have to wipe the inside of the rim, finding a cleaner that removes brake dust, tar and road grime easily is important, this stuff works fantastic.

On the weak side

this product barely touched sap or tar. Most products like this get under the intended offense and lift it off. No such action.

Worked on tree sap

The liquid has oily feel, so do not spill inside

Fancy packaging - disappointing results

August 11, 2020

I've used bug and tar remover for years and it always seemed to work amazingly well. I bought this product expecting similar results and I was extremely disappointed. It didn't do much more for removing the dead bugs than spit would have. Maybe the EPA shut down the old stuff but this new product wasn't worth the effort let alone the price.

Helped quite a bit

Worked great

June 13, 2020

I was little apprehensive because it was a spray-on rinse off application. I went through so much tar the sides of my silver car was black but I sprayed it on waited more than the 5 minutes and when I rinsed it off under high pressure 80% of it came off. I did have to do a second application and then a light third application but all the tire was removed. Good product and I would use it again. I wish I had before and after pictures to post.

Worth the money and it works!!!

June 12, 2020

When I came home from work my road had been sealed while I was gone so what looked like a wet road was actually sticky tar. My car is also always covered in dead bugs as I travel the interstate often. This product surprised me with how it made the tar wipe off. I did have to scrub the thicker tar and will need to do it a third time to get the last of the thick tar off and to clean the rims off but for $5 to save my paint job without taking it to an expensive detail shop I'll take it!!! The bugs on the other hand, it did clean off the guts pretty easy but the ones where the carcasses are stuck still wouldn't come off even with scrubbing. For full disclosure I will say I didn't spray as thick over the bugs so I will try again with them and a thicker coat tomorrow. I give it a 4/5 because it works but it doesn't work as simply on bugs as the ads for it describe.

Not impressed

May 09, 2020

I traveled from south Louisiana at night with my new car. I had a ton of dead dry bugs on front of car. Tried using this product as per directions. Did not do the trick I think it removed some of my clear coat due to the slime trail dripping off bumper. Eventually I went back to using simple green spray it on three times in intervals of five to ten minutes between spraying and used high powered water hose tip. They came right trick is to do it in the morning before sun gets to hot.

This stuff is great

May 06, 2020

I commute to work through the country , so my front end always looks like a battle zone with all the dead bugs. This stuff, when used as directed, works like a champ. I spray it on, wait, give a light wipe/scub, then pressure wash. The bug come of with no problems at all.

Work Good...

April 11, 2020

I have two bottle of this in my garage now. If you live where bugs are bad like I do, then you would benefit from this product. All you do is just spray it on before you are ready to wash, let it soak for a few minutes and start washing the bugs away. Now that being said there may still be a bug here and there that require a hard scrub but for the most part they just wash away pretty easily. I recommend giving it a try.

Works fine despite the lazy negative reviews

July 26, 2019

All these people are expecting miracles out of something that they just want to spray wet soak and hose off but in reality if there was something like that it would destroy your paint so you have to put a little elbow grease into it or use a soft brush after it has soaked for a few minutes. But if you can handle that menial task it works great. The front of my car was covered in bugs that were baked on by the heat and after letting it soak for a few minutes then scrubbing it with a soft brush everything came off. The only downside is if you don’t rinse it well it will leave a milky residue so I recommend doing the bug removal first and then washing your car

Not what I needed

June 22, 2019

This runs right off the paint and doesn’t soak into the bug to effectively remove it. I wish they made a foam that would stay on the paint longer to soak into the but to break it free.

Very disappointed with this product. Saw some good reviews on other websites and thought I would try. Followed instructions, applies when it was cool and cloudy. Helped a little but still needed a double application and a lot of elbow grease to scrub off the bugs.
