There might’ve been a time where you scuff your car from a door or something that causes a paint mark. KLEANTRIX on YouTube shows how to remove scuff marks on your car with no tools. Also, it’s effective if the mark did not go deeper than the clear coat, but this will remove the white mark. I’ve scuffed my car before on a garage wall, and I wish I’ve known this hack beforehand to make it easier. I didn’t want my parents to say anything, but I did try to scrub it out with just water and dish soap. It did work, but not seamlessly. The before and after picture is surprising and I love how I can easily remove those scuff marks now.



  • WD-40
  • sponge
  • car soap
  • water
  • microfiber towel
  • polish and compound, optional


First, apply the WD-40 onto the paint scuff mark. Then, go with the grain and scrub to take it off. WD-40 helps loosen the paint mark off and once it sinks into the mark, so use an abrasive sponge. So, saturate the paint mark with the WD-40. Repeat until the mark comes off.
