Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Had old Ben driven a car, he might have added paint stains to his list of life’s certainties. Unless you keep your car locked away in the garage or wrapped in some kind of paint protection film, car paint stains are frustratingly unavoidable. What’s worse, some car paint stains can be extremely difficult to remove. But never fear, Auto Super Shield is here.Learn tips for cleaning tree sap, bug splatters, water spots, and tape residue off your car so you can keep your ride looking fresh and dapper.
It’s important to remove tree
sap as quickly as possible, since leaving it alone will cause the sap to harden and turn black and become even harder to remove. After a while, tree sap can even etch through the paint’s clear coat, leading to staining or discoloring. However, tree sap doesn’t respond well to normal automotive soap solutions, so keep nail polish remover, mineral spirits, or tar remover in the garage or in the trunk of your car to get rid of tree sap as soon as you discover it.
Drive for any length of time and you’ll end up with bug splats on the front of your car. Bugs are impossible to avoid, and if you leave the dead ones on your car for too long they can harden and start to eat away at the paint job. Bug splatters can also be unattractive, which is the last thing you want people to think about your car (especially here in South Florida).
There are two kinds of water spots: Type I water spots (above surface mineral deposits) and Type II water spots (below surface water spot etchings). Because Type II water spots often require heavy buffing to remove, it’s important that you remove Type I water spots before they get worse.
Removing car stickers isn’t as easy as putting them on. The leftover adhesive residue can be hard to wash off, and you don’t want to scrape it off since doing so can cause scratches. Refer to this article for tips on how to remove car stickers without leaving any residue behind. Otherwise, here are some tips for removing the leftover glue residue after a botched sticker removal.
