How do you remove car paint transfer?

What's the best way to remove paint transfer and scuffs from a car? I scraped part of a pole in a parking garage. It didn't dent my car, but it did get some yellow paint on the front bumper.

“Removing car paint transfer is surprisingly easy. You can typically buff superficial scuffs off your car’s paint using scratch remover, polishing compound, and a microfiber towel (or two).
Here’s how:
  • Start by cleaning the affected area.
  • Then, apply the scratch remover to a microfiber towel and rub it onto the affected area of your car.
  • If this doesn’t remove the paint transfer, use a different towel to apply the polishing compound.
  • Reapply as necessary until the scuff is gone.
Be aware that the chemicals in these compounds may remove the wax from your vehicle. So it’s a good idea to wash and wax your car after using them.
Since you clearly care about keeping your vehicle in good shape, now’s a great time to review your car insurance policy to ensure you have great coverage—and aren’t overpaying for it.
