Default How to remove household paint from surface of car?

Anybody know how to remove household paint from the surface of their car? I was driving to school tuesday morning and there was a paint bucket in the middle of the road, i couldn't avoid it, but I slowly crawled through the paint, it got on the car anyways. It's now thursday and it's not coming off. I've tried isopropyl rubbing alcohol as well as a pressure washer. Someone told me to try and use something called "Denatured alcohol" but it seems to me that this might actually take off the body paint as well. Anybody have any other suggestions? Would be a great assistance...

Try a clay bar with a detail spray as lubricant. A lot of clay bar "systems" come with the spray in the box. Clay bar's were first used on car paint to remove overspray and surface contaminants in body shops. It might work for this (although it's hard to say without seeing it).

if it's just a few speckles.. small ones...

clay bar/detail clay will work.
i've done it....

(removed yellow overspray from my black car!)

but if it's larger spots?
you may want to take it to a proper
detail shop and have them attack
it with some of their chemicals and such.

good luck
