    Stain on paint

    I washed my car the other day and noticed that there are tan stains on the rear inside lips of the wheel wells and behind the back tires(panel/bumper area). My car is white. I use Zaino products(car soap, Z2,Z5,Z6,etc) and the stains are very hard to get off. Some of the stains still have not come off. I know if I use a wax cleaner or some sort of spray cleaner the stains will come off, but so will the Zaino that is on the paint. I think the stains are from the tire shine i use, but I am not sure. Is there anything I can use to get the stains out of my paint without removing the Zaino? The next time I put tire shine on my tires I am going to use a different brand and a new applicator to see if it's the tire shine.

    So again, is there anything I can use to get the stains out of my paint without removing the Zaino?

    Thanks

    Probally not, in oreder to remove the stains you will have to remove the zanio. You can try a polish or paint cleaner and see if this helps.

    One trick I picked up when I worked at a bodyshop, was to use some Kerosene. It will need to be rewaxed when your done but it works great on white paint. As long as the paint has not been just sprayed. Up here in Alaska we get yellow salt stains on white vehicles and this is the best stuff I've found to remove it.
