I had a similar though, not as severe mess like this to clean a few weeks ago. The bonus point is the car has now been polished/waxed completely for the next 6 months!

That's hectic, lodge a claim and let them pay for damages.
By the way another good tar remover is Cobra Stoep polish, the white one

Just one thing.........after seeing the tar removal qualities of margarine - an emulsion of water and vegetable fats - and the emulsifier is formaldehyde in some cases are you still prepared to eat it............

They use lecithin as the emulsifier.

Not Always Tool not always - cheaper brands tend to use the nasty stuff - Chemically Margerine is closer to things like boiled linseedoil and Turpentine.

Thankfully I have violent alergic reaction to anything soybeen related - the one major source of lecithin. So I have an excuse to go for real butter
