Son washed car in fairy liquid!

My 11 year old washed my Java black Discovery while I was at work but used fairy liquid! It has marked the paint quite badly and wont come off after washing. Is a machine polish the only answer?

Why not try a pre-wax cleaner to see if that will shift the marks before getting out the polisher?

Could be wrong, but it could have stripped all the wax / polish off, rather than actually marking the paint (unless, unfortunately, he has marked it by accident when washing it for you) - I'd try applying polish and re waxing and fingers crossed, it'll come up very well

If you have a machine to polish then yes, use it, if not, I'd try by hand before spending more money, good luck

It will be fine, in 1988 I washed a new red car in FL every other day, with no wax, just washing. It never impacted on the shine depth of clarity looked clean all the time. Initial shampoo used to come in plastic little tubes, everyone used dish soap that was all they had.

May have been too hot on not rinsed off, as suggested try these options or use an app plus modern car shampoo.

If the fairy liquid has been left to dry without rinsing it'll have etched the paint and yes, then its a machine polish Im afraid

Well the thought was there. Fairy liquids got all sorts of crap in it so it may of degraded your lsp or removed it. Without seeing it, it's hard to tell

There was a thread not too long ago about using washing up liquid instead of regular shampoo, of any sort, and the general view was that it was ok to use. I was shouted down on the basis that it was pointless, no cost savings and a high salt content in washing up liquid.

I would go though a reguular process as others have said. Pressure wash, perhaps even wait for rain if you are in a hard water area, use a good wash wax dry and measure the results then go to a hand polish, something like SRP.

If there remains a problem its going to be a machine polish.

I think the problem may be because it wasn't rinsed off well enough,bless him he thought he was doing dad a big favour. Have you found out what he's after yet ?
