Summertime means lots of things! It is a time when the sun is shining, butterflies are flying, the birds are singing - and pooping on your car. You may not think it could easily harm your car, but it can do more damage than you think. Can bird droppings actually hurt your car’s paint finish?
Yes! Bird droppings can actually hurt the paint of your vehicle and are why you should remove it right away. Bird droppings are more than just annoying and ugly to look at they are corrosive enough to eat through wax or paint on your vehicle. Here is the science behind it. Bird poop contains uric acid and it is corrosive enough to eat past your car’s wax job or paint sealant and then begin to eat away at your car's paint.
You can remove bird droppings using club soda. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe with a soft cloth. When you remove bird droppings right away, you will not only keep your vehicle looking great, it will protect the paint on your vehicle.
