    * Clean cloth
    * Butter, peanut butter, vegetable oil or bath oil

    * 1

    Clean off the area with soap and water.
    * 2

    Apply one of the following household items to the area: creamy peanut butter, butter, vegetable oil, mayonaise or bath oil. ( Using creamy peanut butter might require some elbow grease.)
    * 3

    Let it sit for 24 hours to soften the tar.
    * 4

    Wipe with a clean cloth.

    If that does not work, apply one of the following directly to the area: WD-40, kerosene or mineral spirits.
