Car polish usually makes a car look clean, shiny, and all around impressive, but if your car polish has left a hazy or streaky film on your car's paint job you'll need to know how to remove car polish. With a few hours of your time and some hard work you'll have your car looking brand new again, and you might even get a nice workout in the process.
Items You'll Need
- Rubbing Compound
- Microfiber Cloth
- Wash the car. If your car has not been cleaned recently, wash the car thoroughly to remove dirt and debris that could scratch the car while you're cleaning. Work on a sunny day so you can easily see what you're doing and how well the polish is coming off.
- Apply a liberal amount of rubbing compound onto a microfiber cloth. This type of cloth can get rid of the polish without leaving marks on your car's paint. The rubbing compound is one of the stronger car cleaners on the market and can take off most of the polish on your car.
- Scrub the car by moving your hand in circular motions. Apply enough pressure to start taking off the polish, but ease up if you feel you may be damaging the paint of the car. Typically this is not a problem, but it's always best to stop every so often and check your results to make sure you're not scrubbing too hard.
- Rinse the car and repeat. After cleaning off the car, rinse it thoroughly and see how much polish is left. Keep cleaning with the rubbing compound until you've removed the polish. Rinse the car a final time and allow it to dry in the sun.
