Solve Tar/Asphalt Stains At Home with Shout® Advanced Grease Busting Aerosol

Shout® Advanced Grease Busting Foam is the best product for this type of stain, but our other products will work as your next-best option.

Step 1.

First, remove any excess. Place your garment face-down on a clean absorbent material, such as a white paper towel.

Step 2.

Sponge the backside of your garment with turpentine or paint thinner, replacing the paper towel frequently. Then rinse your garment with water.

Step 3.

Check the label. Make sure your garment is colorfast and washable and says nothing about being “dry-clean only.” If the item meets both of those requirements, you’re ready for Step 4.

Step 4.

Pretreat the stain with Shout® Advanced Grease Busting Foam or one of the other recommended products. Be sure to rub it in for deep penetration.

Step 5.

Show some patience, but not too much. You should only wait 1-5 minutes before washing your stain in the warmest water your item recommends. It would be a bad idea for your clothes to let Shout® Advanced Grease Busting Foam dry before the wash.

Step 6.

If some stain remains, you may want to try dry-cleaning your item.

Shout® Pro Tip. Turpentine and paint thinner can damage some fabrics. Test on a hidden area first. Do not use acetone on dynel, acetate or spandex.

Shout® Warning. Use solvents in a well-ventilated room as fumes can cause illness. Do not use solvents near an open flame or an electrical outlet. Close container securely.
