    baking soda (make a paste)

    diesel fuel

    mayonaise.

    or a commercially bought tar remover.


    I can see it working on a smooth surface like a board, but good luck getting it off your pads. I have stains on mine and i have no idea how to get it off.

    This thread is about tar removal, Marc...not fluids you frequently use for masturbation purposes.

    anyone ever hear of this magical thing called "goo-be-gone"...if im not mistaken it was invented because of things like this, but, hell while you're at it, go put some mustard on it too and put it between two pieces of bread.

    Just cover the whole thing in tar. Now you have a black pad, and no more tar problem.
