    Meguiars Hot Shine Tire Spray left a nice hot yellow stain?

    Hey, I used the "Hot Shine Tire spray" and while driving a bit got on the car paint. Any where it touched plastic it has stained it yellow. I tried Step 1(paint cleaner) from Meguiars and the quick detailing spray and it did not remove it. I've used other brands of tire shine before that have got on the paint a bit but did not leave any permanent marks.

    How do I get it off?

    Thanks

    Might wanna try some APC and a cotton towel and a little passion.

    Wait, I'm a bit confused... you mentioned it got on your paint, but then you said it stained the plastic- just to be clear, which one is it?

    Did it stain the paint, the plastic, or both?

    I find that strange.I've put Hot shine on ABS plastic and it makes it shinier.

    It stained the paint on the plastic body parts. The stuff that got on the metal body parts wiped off without issue. I'm at work right now but I can take a picture when I get home to show you.

    I cleaned it off a few hours later when I pulled over and saw it on the side of my car.

    What kind of All-purpose-cleaner should I use? I don't want to damage it more with using some really harsh.

    APC is All Purpose Cleaner and Meguiar's is safe on just about everything (actually, I don't know anything it's not safe on). But just to be safe test it on a small spot first to see how it reacts.

    I'm just guessing here, but it looks like some brown you see when you clean your tires got mixed in with the Tire Shine when it slung onto the plastic. That could be what is causing the staining.

    If you don't have any APC on hand try using some cleaner wax and a foam pad.

    I haven't found the Meguiars APC anywhere here yet. So I will try some stuff again tonight (quick detail-er, clay bar, scratch X, step-1 cleaner).
