  • Dang if this is 51, he was 2 years early for WD40. But, if you ever get in this situation, ever, back when I was a volunteer Firefighter and EMT the local hospital kept 4 huge industrial jugs of Mayo just for them in the cafeteria. Roofers who had hot tar accidents, or too much tar to remove, cold Mayo will have it wipe right off with no further damage.
  • Hey, great tip. Mayo. Thanks. I just threw WD40 in there because I know it works to wipe off Henry's roofing tar in a can, & grimy hands from oil & grease. Had no idea when it was made.
  • Speaking of large quantities of mayonnaise, do you think you could swim in a pool full of it?
  • Is this a time sensitive question?
  • i fully expect a training montage with upbeat 80's music of some guy learning how to swim in mayo
  • Is Mayonnaise a instrument?
  • an instrument a instrument Did you ad lib that, or is that the original and I just never noticed?
  • You could actually swim in it as well as in normal water
  • I'll try the mayo out, last time I got some tar on my car's tyres (They repaired a street near my home and didn't leave any signs of "fresh tar") I was told to use diesel, and while it worked, it sucked and wasn't easy.
  • Yeah diesel is a pain to clean up in itself.
  • It must be the oil- I used pure olive oil this summer and after a minute of soaking it wiped off like nothing. I wish I'd googled before I scrubbed the first patch damn near raw with everything else I could think of.
  • WD-40 wasn't invented til '53
  • Man, those must have been some uncomfortable years for him.
  • Think about the people that were tarred and feathered in the 18th century!
  • At least that was just pine tar.
  • Yes, but it was sometimes applied boiling hot.
  • A lot of them died actually. It wasn't the humorous thing as played out on the western sitcoms when I was a kid.
