Insect removers reviewed - 9. Halfords Bug & Tar Remover
For: Effective and cheap for this type of remover
Against:Not good for quick touch-up work
Like the two Turtlewax products on test, the Halfords remover is more like a polish. Halfords’ fluid is the cheaper of the three and worked well once it had been left to act for a minute.
Cheaper than both Turtlewax removers.
Ease of Use:
Residue needs to be washed off, which makes the process more involved – fine if you were planning to wash your car anyway, but not for a quick clean up.
Can be used to remove a wide range of contaminants from glass and painted surfaces, but not rough, unpainted plastics.
