Question: Whats the best product to remove egg yolk from paint finish?

Last night I heard a thump about midnite, someone egged my wife's caravan

Step one: Used car soap Armorall brand, still streaked = FAIL

Step two: Used GooGone Bug & Tar Remover, Streaking still = FAIL

So I am here to ask what else can I use, any help would be appreciated.

Hmm...

Hopefully they didn't coat the whole car and it's just a few spots.

I'd try windex..ammonia free..it'll remove the wax and all from those areas so it'll need another good cleanup, but it's safe for paint, and melts a lot of stuff. After that you might try wd-40.

Makes you wanta kill the little ba_ _ ards if you could catch them .
Unfortunately I have to refrain from commentary Tom, but Im sure you know my feelings.

Mike, thanks, I will try the ammonia free stuff, goo gone is just like wd40 only in a pump spray, tried that, maybe another dose will do
Thanks

Step 1: If possible, do not allow the egg to sit on the car for an extended period, especially in the sun. Every second counts. As soon as you discover the mess, begin steps to clean the vehicle.

Step 2: Using your hand, remove all traces of the egg shell from the car.

Step 3: Once pieces of the egg shell are removed, clean the egg and yolk from the car using a soft towel. It is important to remove all traces of the egg shell. This way, you avoid scratching the surface of the car.

Step 4: Create a mixture using 1 part water and 1 part vinegar.

Step 5: Soak a towel in the mixture, and place it on the egg stain. You may also spray the mixture onto the car using a spray bottle. Allow the towel to sit for at least 15 minutes.

Step 6: Remove the towel. Dry the area using a different towel.

Step 7: If necessary, repeat steps 5 and 6.

Might be worth a try

Dude, no harm no foul, just bad timing, I was still searching for a solution that would work.

I dunno --still working on it, gonna try what Stillbad and Tahotim below have recommended, right now its nothing but streaks, I didnt catch it till the way after the sun came up, gonna do the 50-50 vinegar/H20 thing which seems the most logical.

heres a link that has some other ideas....but its for house paint.....still might be effective, and it also seconds the 50/50 water vinegar idea...

Yeah it was burned into the paint because the family didnt notice it when they went to church, I noticed it just before posting, driveway fulla egg shells! SO it was in the sun till they came back, really sucks, I dont know why they didnt hit my car which was parked inches away, but Im thankful
