How the heck do you remove stains from plastic bumper? As i was claybarring right rear door, as i look down i saw stains on lower bumper next to wheel. I immediately tried to clay that baby off but no luck, i guess clay doesnt work for plastic, what else can i use?
It looks like stains from wheel polish (i have stonewhite so you can clearly see it)

Can you post a pic? I can't picture where on the car this is, (early yet! LOL) Plus seeing what kind of stains they look like will help.

this is where i was talking about. it looks like spagetti stains on a white t-shirt youve been trying to wash to get the stains out.

(This isnt my car, just a sample to give you an idea of what i was talking about)

i tried a few times, i tried to scrub as hard as i could without breaking the plastic rear panel.

from the mequires site... these may help

ScratchX or Deep Crystal Paint Cleaner to safely clean the surface and remove the offending contaminants.

ScratchX is mildly abrasive, should work better than the paint cleaner. Are you saying they are reddish orange stains like spagetti sauce??? What the heck did you drive through?LOL

Try the scratchX, let us know, though this is why I don't own a white car....

Try Lestoil or Simple Green. I use Lestoil to clean all kinds on spots on the body. Just a little bit on a paper towel works. Strong stuff that Lestoil.
