How can I get ink off of car paint?

I was leaning against my car after work, and I didn’t realize I had a pen in my pocket. Long story short, it exploded, and now there’s paint everywhere on my car door! How do I get the ink off the exterior paint of my car?

So sorry that happened, but I’m happy to say that ink should be easy to get off your car’s exterior! Here’s how to do it:
  • Grab rubbing alcohol or mix one part of dish soap to two parts white vinegar.
  • Put the liquid on a rag and dab the ink spot.
  • Let it set for 10 to 15 minutes, and then wipe away the ink
    With any luck, this will remove the ink without the kind of damage that would require you to repaint the car!
If you want to keep your car in tip-top condition, you may want to review your car insurance policy to make sure you’re getting the best deal on the coverage you need. To do this easily, check out the Jerry app—we’ll get you personalized quotes from top providers, so that all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you!
Best of luck, and happy cleaning!
