i had my windows tinted and car washed last week and this week noticed what looks like a grease stain on my paint about few inches in lenght. Won't wipe off, any suggestions?
If you use a kitchen based detergent or spray you MUST wax immediately after. Dawn like detergents fully remove all waxes.Can you post a pic? Can't imagine why there would be a grease stain from a tint job, unless someone was careless from another job. Pick up a clay bar if you don't have one or use a grease cutting detergent like Dawn or a kitchen spray like fantastic or greased lightning. Fantastic is safe on enamel paints and has been used by the Marine 1 crews for the presidential helicopter. Works well on my cars. If the clear coat was stained or marred somehow (from a strong solvent) then you may need to buff it off. Be careful because you don't know how deep it goes. Maybe get a body shop to clean it.
That looks like adhesive from the tint. If the clay bar doesn't work you might try some goo gone or orange citrus. If that doesn't work, goof off, but be very careful...it can remove paint if left on too long.Here is the pic execuse the smudges from my fingers trying to wipe it off
Stopping rubbing it without a solvent. Soak a soft microfiber towel with WD40 (use a decent amount) and try to clean the area. Try that first. If that doesn't clean it, we move up the solvent scale. A good product for stuff like this - Wurth CleanSolve - have to buy it mail order, but it's good stuff, safer than goof off in my opinion.
Clay bar is good too, but follow the directions and use plenty of the solvent spray when claying, the kit will come with it. Only clay wet.
Yes do the clay bar with detail spray.
Is it the dark cloudy area, the light cloudy area, or both? Light cloudy looks like adhesive.
Dawn. You'll need to was after but it's the next best option.Tried the clay, barely put a dent if any at all. Ended up putting some light swirls in the process but that can be corrected, what's next to try? What's crazy is the stain looks like under the clear coat or absorbed.
