My husband went ballistic when he saw a scrape on my car bumper. My grandkids ride their bikes, etc. and he just knew someone had "nicked" the paint on the bumper. I took a tiny bit of a Mr. Clean sponge (the clean-the-marks kind) and gently scrubbed the "nick". It was gone in no time, and not a trace of anything remained. Disaster averted. Even got rid of a few more that looked like nicks!

Back when I was with my first husband, I grazed the side of the garage with the door of our car and I heard about it for weeks. One evening when he was not around, I took rubbing compound and rubbed the scratches out and you could not ever tell they had been there. He never said a word to me about it. Six months later he totaled the car.
I've used Magic Eraser for tree sap on my older cars and it works wonders!
I hit a yellow pole with my brand new truck and had no idea how to get the yellow paint off. I went online and someone suggested using the Magic Eraser. It worked awesome, without ruining my paint job. I still have a couple of marks from the pole however ALL of the paint came off without too much elbow grease.
Those new 'eraser' sponges also work on cars. Last summer I backed into the garage and got too close, the result was brown paint on a white car! Yikes! Only minimal elbow grease required.
