Clearbra got whacked by a tire

That blew up on the freeway. Now there's this black smudge on my bra and it won't come off with a towel and water. How to get it off? Thanks

Use a wax or light polish to remove. No issues, happens on the track ALL DAY!

Happens all the time at the track, just clay bar. I am 110% that the clear bra is fine. Just get any claybar and start rubbing away. Could take a while but work at it for a few minutes and it goes away, trust.

Try some Plexus plastic cleaner. I had tire scuff marks on my front bumper a while back and it came off with Plexus pretty easily.

The Ventureshield installers in California, Premier, sell a product specifically desinged to remove such difficult to remove "material transfers" on their film. Probably will work fine on a non Ventureshield bra as well. Note: I have personally used and tested their product.

light polish on a black pad with a pc will remove with ease, but you will want to do the whole thing as that spot will be more clean than the rest
