How do you take overspray off car paint?

What's the best way to remove overspray from car paint? I had my car outside when my neighbor decided to spray paint. Some of the overspray landed on my car.

“Oops! Sounds like an honest mistake. Luckily, you can take overspray off car paint with a clay bar and a surface cleanser like WipeOut.
Here’s how:
  • Start by washing the affected area.
  • Next, use a clay bar to remove the paint from the pores of the clear coat.
  • Then, use WipeOut or something similar to remove any of the clay or other contaminants.
  • Finally, use a ceramic coating spray to finish the job.
This method is much more economical than immediately opting for an expensive paint job. But if the overspray damage is extensive, it may be worth checking with your insurance provider to see if it’s covered by your comprehensive coverage.
