Rated 5 out of 5 by Worked like a dream! Today I rode my bike through an unmarked section of wet tar. I was so frustrated! My bike was a mess. This product worked like a dream. I sprayed it on. Waited one minute. Held my breath, and wiped.... and the tar came right off! I couldn't believe it! It was SO easy, and my bike looks as good as new. Hurray! And thank you! July 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Effective I had to remove tar splatter from the grill, hood, and windsheild of my mint 1997 Cadillac Seville SLS (original paint). This product exceeded my expectations! It leaves a beautiful shine - no streaks or film whatsoever (even on glass!). Absolutely worth the purchase price to save time and effort. July 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great on Bird Droppings Purchased last year and now keep a bottle ready for bird droppings on car works great for removal of tuff droppings and bugs and tree sap. Wish I found this earlier. June 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Made my wash much easier I live in Louisiana and have to drive through a swamp every day going to work. I get a lot of bugs stuck on my front bumper and they are very hard to remove. This product eliminated 90% of the effort needed to remove the bugs and even though a friend of mine who paints cars said that it was probably just another "gimmick product" I was impressed and pleased that it performed and did what you said it would do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Does Not Work Renew Rx does not remove tar. I followed directions explicitly and applied it twice to the same spot. It became a smeared mess. I have an old bottle of Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover (same UPC) that is not "Renew Rx." I used a small spray of it and off the tar came. Go back to the old formula - it works. May 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great I bought this a few days ago and used it on my dads car its just fine it removed most-to all of the bugs May 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Semi Awesome!!! I bought a bottle of this to try on my semi trucks, going into the process being very skeptical. I sprayed it on and waited a minute or two and started wiping the area with a terrycloth towel. When I wiped over the area the bugs just disappeared! I nearly fell over because it worked so well and was very easy to use with very little scrubbing. I have never been able to get bugs off that easily before. I just wish I could get it in a bigger size or in a refill because I plan on using it a lot. I don't know what the people are doing that say this doesn't work, because if it will make the front of a semi spotless, it should work on anything. Thanks! November 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sucks . I used it to remove tar off my tahoe and completely ruined my paint up. Thanks alot... September 15, 2015
