I use distilled white vinegar. does the trick unless they're really baked on, just rinse it off with water afterwards.

Magic Eraser! When I bought both my Roush's they had major water stains. I used a Magic Eraser and they came off like butter (or something easy like that, lol)!!

If you have any compounds or polishes they should work, take meguires 105 compound to a window and it takes EVERYTHING off including water spots and such.

The majic eraser sounds like a good idea tho...less mess too.

Both your cars are silver. Hard to tell on those but put under 1000 watt lights and look. And i have tried before years ago and looked like i sanded my paint. Magic eraser can be used in interior if protected afterwards but never on paint. I know you $60k cars ain't got nothing on my paint of my old $11k 02 gt. Wonder why i hate cocky cobra/Roush/saleen/vette and other high end car owners. Think everything they do is perfect and everybody else is wrong and their car is worth its weight in gold and everybody else's car is worth its weight in dirt.

Also detailed image agrees and they know nothing in terms of detailing high end cars i guess???? Guess they are complete idiots too and just believe whatever they read online.....Oh looks like they show up actual proof it doesn't work hmmmmmmmm

lol 60k huh?

I'd be pissed too if I paid double for the same thing with a part here and there and a decal or two, its not cool to reference what you think your cars are worth to validate your input.

Can you use a Magic Eraser on paint? – Detailed Image

Not an iPhone...
And what's funny about people like you that complain about people like me is that you think your shit don't stink. Just because I own a "High End Car" does not make me or my car(s) any better then you and your car. We just made different choices. The reason I posted "my $60K cars" was to reiterate that if it wasn't safe to use, I wouldn't be using it on my cars (which by the way I do own a $5K vehicle - 2002 Dodge Durango w/ 136K miles and guess what I use Magic Eraser on that too). I didn't post that to be cocky or to say I'm better then you. I apologize that you percieved it that way.

When I post, I post from experience. I don't relay on what other people say or what I read online. I also operate a business similar to a detail business and I can tell you from experience that the reason "Detail Image" recommends not using Magic Eraser is because they ARE a detail business. They're trained to use "professional" products and not off the shelf house cleaning products. Because Magic Eraser is not a "professional" product does not mean it doesn't work. Again, I know from first hand experience that it does work and it DOESN'T hurt the finish of any type of paint job (whether it be from a $100K car or $11K car). Again, I know because of my first hand experience and not because of how much my cars cost. I've used Magic Eraser on my windows, stripes, body panels, chrome wheels, hyper black wheels, exhaust, headlights, rubber trim and so on and the finish looked and felt the same as before and after. Again, this is my opinion and my experience. It doesn't mean I'm perfect and everyone else is wrong. The OP asked for suggestions and I simply suggested a technique that worked for me on numerous occasions.

I guess it's not cool for people that can't afford a vehicle like mine, let alone two

if the high end $60k fact doesnt matter then why say it? you would just say i use on my mustangs and it does fine not i own two 60k babies and it works on them but i know nothing. you are all wrong too. did you not read the link i posted and look at the images? have you put your car under 1000+ watt lights and look at the paint. do you own test and tape off a section and use magic eraser on one side and not on other or you finish isnt good to begin with i guess you would never know. and i was saving the op from having to buff scratches out of his car that could be avoided and the link i posted from a "detailing business" actually doesnt say you cant use it just not on paint. i can now see you didnt read the article for sure.

sad man very sad. sorry i am young and dont have $60k to drop on two cars and i wouldnt want the same car twice either that is stupid. you can only drive one at a time. with $120k i could have 3 or 4 mustangs and be nicer and rarer than two roushes. never been a fan of roushes and now not a fan of their owners.

Who gives a shit if your car is worth $60k. It's completely irrelevant to detailing. If anything, you're that much more of an idiot for spending $120k on two Mustangs. You're probably in debt over your head anyway.

They techniques and products I use on my $6,000 Mustang are used on $500k supercars.
