Removing Road Paint From Your Car

by Janice Knight

When road crews paint lines on the road, they don't close the roads down, and in some cases, they don't even post a sign warning you that the paint is fresh and will splatter up the sides of your car if you hit the fresh paint with your car. If you have road paint on your car, it is possible that you could get it off. Below, you will learn how to do just that without damaging the finish if your car.

Supplies Needed

  • Bucket
  • Rags
  • Sponge
  • Pressure washer
  • High-quality auto wash soap
  • Car wax
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Vaseline
  • Spray lubricant

Start with Pressure Washing

If the paint is somewhat fresh, you may be able to get a lot of it off with a good pressure wash. Unfortunately, road paint does dry relatively quickly, so chances are slim that you will be able to get it all off this way – it will just give you fewer spots to hand clean.

Spray Lubricant Treatment

Spray lubricant works to soften the road paint without damaging the paint on your car. Apply the spray lubricant directly to each spot. Let the lubricant work to soften the road paint for a couple of hours. Then, try pressure washing the car once more. You will see that some, if not all, of the road paint will come off with the pressure washer.

Note: If the road paint has formed a thick layer on your car, this process could take several applications before the road paint comes off.

Treat with Vaseline

If you have tried a few treatments with the spray lubricant and haven't had success, a little Vaseline may do the trick. Just like the spray lubricant, Vaseline works to soften the paint. Unlike the lubricant, Vaseline is safe to leave on the surface of the car for several hours without worrying about it damaging your car.

Apply the Vaseline to any areas exposed to paint. Park the car in a shady area so that the sun doesn't dry the Vaseline. After you have the Vaseline rubbed onto the road paint, let it sit for a day or so. At this point, fill a bucket with very hot water and add the highest-quality auto wash soap that you can find. This is required to remove the greasy residue of the Vaseline and provide your paint with a little protection at the same time.

After you have the paint removed, wash and wax the car with the best possible products. This process can take time, but in the end, you will have a car that you cannot tell ever had road paint splattered on it. Look to professionals like C & B Chemical, Inc. for supplies.
