Hi all

I have a 2004 Ford Ka and on the rear bumper their are stain marks. These are like rain drops but they have dried into the bumper. Do you have any ideas how to remove this. I have been told it could be grease or something similar. Any help would be greatly received. 

 

Many Thanks

Adam

Is it a black unpainted bumper or is it painted. If unpainted some back to black could cover it or you could try smooth peanut butter. The oils in it help clean and bring back the original colour.

if grease or oil try wd40 or break/disk cleaner to remove the stain then use a gel to put the black luster back onto the bumper.

this is what i use

 The Gel is good stuff. There are cheaper versions. I use Simoniz stuff on our cars to great effect
