However hard you try to clean your car, little black spots , mainly tar remains on the side of your car. They may be small spots and may not be clear with a quick view. However on closer inspection, they may be a little sore to the eye. The service guy may clean it up for you, but that is at a cost.
Here is a simple DIY to get rid of those spots.
All what you need is kerosine or diesel and cotton cloth. You can use also some kerosine-based lubricant like WD-40
Do not do this in bright sunlight, but only in the shade
- Apply some kerosene on the tar spots with a piece of cotton and let it absorb for about 5 minutes.
- Wipe away the tar spots with a clean cloth dipped in kerosene again, this time a bit more forcefully. Be careful not to leave scratch-marks on the surface with the tar spots stuck in the cloth by dragging the kerosene soaked-cotton along the surface.
- Repeat the procedure if needed (for big tar spots)
- Clean the surface with you usual car shampoo to remove the diesel stains from the car body.
Note: With the paint brush instead io cloth, the hands remain clean, whereas with the cloth the fingers and/or hands can get messed up.
