The truth behind TAR.


Hey, it’s Dawn, your A Clean Cigarette blogger.  I am back for blog #3. I hope the first two got your attention, and I hope this one keeps it! Today we are going to talk about Tar; that’s a picture of Tar right there.⇓

A Tar Pit. Ewww!

Now, tar is always found, in every single cigarette that is smoked.  There is simply no getting around it. That is because tobacco cigarettes are lit on fire.  Fire burning anything creates smoke and tar; that’s just a fact. The fact that electronic cigarettes are not lit on fire means they cannot produce the stuff.

But back to tobacco, the yellow on these cigarette butts is Tar.


That same yellowing occurs on the walls of a house where there are people smoking burning tobacco as a means to deliver nicotine. ⇓ Yuck!

This stuff sticks to everything, walls, furniture, clothes, even your hair!

That can mean a rough clean up!

Double Yuck!
Double Yuck!

That’s not all tar stains though. Check these pics out. ⇓

Your teeth take care of you, shouldn’t they get a break from the tar?


It is not hard to spot a long term smoker, the tar leaves it’s mark for all to see.


The staining can get very bad, as seen here on this long term smokers fingers.

Unfortunately, it gets way worse. When a smoker inhales tar from a burning cigarette, then it coats their lungs. Warning, the next picture is not for the faint of heart. ⇓ To be completely honest it is straight out disgusting.

This is what Tar does to lungs.

To wrap it up

On top of being bad for the health of your lungs and teeth, it stinks up your home and overall is just gross. Tar sticks to everything, even you. It happens whenever something is lit on fire.  If you really want to keep the nicotine, but you are tired of TAR we do have another option for you. A Clean Cigarette brand electronic cigarettes cannot produce tar. So you still get your nicotine, but you get to give up not only the gross black stuff but nearly 600 ingredients and 4000+ chemicals too. It seems like a better than a fair trade to us and we hope you agree!

As always I hope this was useful, and if you have any questions at all either leave me a comment here or drop me a line at
