how to remove stains on paint from tire dressing

Asked by Jul 17, 2016 at 03:29 AM about the 2016 Honda Accord Touring

Question type: General

I just bought a new white Honda Accord.  I used a silicon based tire dressing,
which spattered onto the white paint of the car body.  After cleaning the car I
noticed that there were small yellowish-brown stains in the paint that can not
be removed.  It seems that the discoloration is embedded into the paint, not
just on the surface.  Is there anything that can remove these stains, or am I out
of luck.  Also, will water based tire dressing do the same thing, or is it just
isolated to silicone products?

I don't use tire dressing for that reason, and it seems to degrade the rubber some over time, but I don't have all the facts to post. I use regular soap and water to clean them. try using a cleaner wax to see if the spots will come off, don't rub too much you scratch the paint. I like Mother's or Meiguirs brand products.

Small amount of WD-40 in on a microfibre cloth may remove the stain. I hate tire dressing.
