Default rubbing compound removal tips

I took my car to a body shop after an accident. When i got it back the guys rubbing compound was still on the car. He told me it would come off the first time i washed it...it didnt! So now the paint down the side of my car is all cloudy.

any suggestions of how to get it off?

Any decent body shop will not leave rubbing compound residue, and they damn well better wash the car before giving it back to you. Take it back and make them fix it.

Yeah, take it back. If it is rubbing compound and you paid them, you should't have to assume the risk of removing it and potentially damaging your paint. Rubbing compound can be pretty aggressive stuff.

Most rubbing compounds are actually made out of paint like chemicals that chemically buff the clear they no longer are made of fine sand and other abrasives the down side of chemically buffing is if you do not remove it quickly from the fresh clear coat it will only buff off
Once it drys it bonds

You can also try to spray some quick detailer on it and then remove it with a soft towel. I use that at times when a wax or polish is applied to thick. Usually wipes right off
