Dried egg from automotive paint

This question was received from Nellie: How do you remove cooked on egg off of the front of a car? Sorry that this has taken so incredibley long, but we don’t often use our vehicles as griddles for cooking omlettes, so the pro’s we consulted had never really come accross anything like this.

So, we took an egg, cracked it, (beat it a little) and poured it on one of our cars and sat it under a 500 watt halogen construction light for a couple hours. Are we dedicated or what? We didn’t let it sit for days on end in 100 degree heat, but it did get pretty cooked on. Brushes didn’t work as effectively as we thought they might, but we eventually took a heavy terry wash towel and soaked it in a 50/50 mixture of warm water and white vinegar. We put the towel over the scrambled egg remains, and let it sit for about 10 minutes.

With that the egg scraped off easily with a finger nail, and then a brush. You may want to let the vinegar mixture sit longer. As well the car we did it to was waxed a few months back, and still has a very smooth, shiney finish on it. This may have made it a bit easier to remove.
