My car was parked inside my building premises. A nearby building was being painted and small paint spots came and fell all over our car.

My father tried to remove with water and shampoo but not going and if he is using finger nails to remove then scratches are coming.

I researched a lot online and different people are saying to use different things like Thinner / Turpentine / Robin / Rubbing Compound.

Can someone please suggest what will be the best way to remove the spots without damaging our car’s polish and shine.

PS – I couldn’t click any photo so uploading a similar car photo to explain the condition of our car better. https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/676779/medium/dd-1617892759287.jpg?1617892769

If you couldn’t remove it after all the trials, enquire which brand paint it is and update us here? Might be helpful for us.

Must be so heart breaking to see all these spots on the car sad

I guess going to the service guys is the only option. Might need rubbing/painting or some other jugad they might have.

There are lots of chemicals that can dissolve paints. Of course that is going to dissolve your car paint too to some extent. With washing and wiping the car over a period of time the visible damage to your car’s paint will be mitigated to some extent. You can start with WD40, then IPA, then mixture of water plus acetone, Turpentine. If the paint thinner you tried was Turpentine, then no point trying it again. Try first with a Q-tip on an area that is not so readily visible when you look at your car.

My friend faced similar issue. He took the car to a 3m detaining center . They took care of it for a fee. You can explore similar options

Garama garam Paani try kiya? Agar Enamel nahin hai toh garama garam pani ka ponchaa maar do. Fir sookhe kapde se ragad do. Simple!

Corona theek ho gaya?

Hey bro, a simple task to be done and it will fade away easily.
Just purchase a hand sanitizer spray bottle. Take a piece of cotton cloth. Spray and rub it on paint. It does wonders in removing years back paint also. Try this and update here smile
Edit : your cars color will be safe with this.

Thiinner and rubbing alcohol is superior to hand sanitizer. If those didn’t help, I doubt if sanitizer can do. Anyhow lets wait for the op’s reply.
