How do I remove paint from another car from my car?

I got into a minor accident the other day, but the other car scratched up my car and left some paint on it. How do I fix it and make the paint look better?

I’m so sorry to hear about your accident! You can clean off paint marks using a spray detailer and a clay bar. Follow these steps:
  • Clean your car thoroughly using car soap and a sponge.
  • Rinse off the soap and let the car dry. You can use a cotton towel to help dry off the area.
  • Apply a spray detailer on the area with the paint marks.
  • Rub a clay bar from side to side over the paint marks and the surrounding area.
  • If the spray detailer dries out, apply some more. This will make the clay bar application easier.
  • Once you finish, apply more spray detailer.
  • Wipe the area clean with a microfiber cloth.
