    Vinegar Method

  1. 1

    Gently pick away any egg shell that you can. Do not try to pry egg shell off, as you may take off some paint. If the shell is in small pieces, leave them for step two and three.

  2. 2

    Fill a spray bottle with distilled white vinegar. Alternatively, you may soak a towel in a bowl filled with white distilled vinegar.

  3. 3

    Spray the vinegar onto the egg or place the vinegar-soaked towel on the egg.

  4. 4

    Gently wipe away the egg from the car paint. Rinse the egg off the towel often and repeat steps two and three.

    Clay Magic Car Detailing Kit

  1. 1

    Spray egg spot with Clay Magic Clay Lube. This bottle of liquid comes with the car detailing kit.

  2. 2

    Form Clay Magic into pancake shape that will fit easily into your hand.

  3. 3

    Press the clay onto the surface of the car. Repeat the steps of spraying and pressing clay onto egg spot until all the egg is removed.

  4. 4

    Dry the area with a microfibre cloth.

    Goo Gone Automotive

  1. 1

    Spray egged area with Goo Gone Automotive spray.

  2. 2

    Let the Goo Gone Automotive sit for a few minutes to loosen the egg.

  3. 3

    Gently rub the egg with soft cloth. Be gentle as you may need to do this process a few times to get all the egg off and you do not want to pull away paint as you pull off egg.

  4. 4

    Repeat this process until the egg is gone.

Tips and warnings

  • Get to the egg as soon as possible. Egg that is left to sit on car paint causes more damage. The sooner you remove the egg from your car paint, the better.
