To all owners of light colored cars..?

I dont know why this is but maybe one of you can help. I wash my car and inevidably the next 2-3 days a black/charcoal line begins to form right at the door jam straight down to the ground. It begins here first and contiunes to become more pronounced. Then starts forming under my mirrors making a line down the door panel. The only other place this happens is in the passenger side bottom scoop. In the scoop it doesnt form a line but 3 pronounced dots literally the size of 2 dimes and a quarter. What the hell is this and how do i get it to stop? Im thinking its a shipping lubricant like cosmoline from when it came off the bannana boat but IDK. I figured it would have washed away by now but noooooooo, still comes back. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try isopropyl and water 50/50 mix on those areas and if that doesn't work try claying those affected areas to see if there is a difference.

Cheers,
Nick
