Unhappy something on my paint x_X

well, since it's been raining here recently i haven't reallie bothered to wash the car till a few days ago. there's this whiteish stuff on the drive side of my car all over the lower half of the front and rear doors it looks like it was splattered on by driving over a puddle of it or something. i'm not shure what it is..but it comes off when i gently scratch it..it's kinda like dried car wax or mud or something... but it didn't come off when i washed the car and it would take forever and i'd probably scratch the car using my fingernails to try to get them out..anyone have any ideas or should i just wash it like regular and it'll eventually come out??? Thanks~

Steel wool works great for removing just about everything.

Get the 200mg bar and lube. Try it on the whole car... you won't believe how much smoother the paint is.

You might also try meguires cleaner wax as well... sometimes wax loosens road grime up.

If that doesn't work, try that detailing clay bar.. works great!

Is it on your wheels or slightly brownish? Check your CV boot and joint, might have a tear.
