How to remove tar from jeans with astonishing results!

Hi everyone! Leslie here, sharing a tutorial for removing tar from jeans - after they've been washed and dried at least three times! First order of business is to let you know that this post contains affiliate links. And yes, you CAN remove washed and dried tar from jeans using one amazing product, so hang with me for a few minutes while I show you how!

My husband sat down on a 5-gallon bucket that he didn't realize had fresh tar on the top of the lid which resulted in a tar stain on the seat of his pants. This is what we were up against so I decided to use Best Cleaner Ever to see if we could crack this. I've been using Best Cleaner Ever for several years to clean my scissors in my studio so I was pretty sure it would work on the tar.



First application of Best Cleaner Ever which I let sit for 15 minutes.



Second application (already a noticeable difference) which I let sit for 30 minutes.



Third application which I let sit for another 30 minutes.



I used a scraper to scrape off the tar and applied more Best Cleaner Ever which I let sit for 45 minutes, then washed the pants.



Pants just out of the washer, noticeably cleaner but there's still a stain. I applied more Best Cleaner Ever and let it sit for another 45 minutes, then took a scrub brush over the stained area and washed the pants a second time.



Pants out of the washer the second time and while still more noticeably clean, there's still a slight stain. I applied more Best Cleaner Ever and let it sit for another 45 minutes, then took the scrub brush to the stained area again and washed the pants a third time.



And here are the pants after the third wash. No more tar and the hubby is happy! It took several hours and three washes but the results were well worth it! Perseverance paid off! ;)
