Unfortunately I placed my car, where colouring of an iron structure was going on. Some spray colour spread on my car's outside.


And when I drive my car at night on ac, the outside of the glasses are getting fogged. When I wipe them with the wipers, it remains clear for 30 to 45 seconds.

Please let me know how to remove colour drops and defog the outer area of glass.

Thanks & Regards,

My husband and I have a dark purple truck. Someone lost a bucket of white paint on the road and of course we drove through it. How do I get the white paint off the truck without ruining the paint job?

My X used to do cosmetic scratches on cars for a living. He took it off with paint thinner.
