what's a good way to remove paint from other people's cars from your own car?

I know the title may sound awkward, but I'm wondering what's the best way to remove paint left on your car from when other cars brushed doors or fenders with yours in the parking lot? My car's black and I have a few white marks on the passenger side where it looks like a door or something skimmed across it. Also, will removing this hurt my paint?

Using some light rubbing compound (not the heavy duty stuff) should do it.

yea, i tapped a black pole with my dark emerald colored accord, and it left a couple light to dark colored scrapes on my passenger door......the next day io brought it up to my dads and he handed me this 3M rubbing compound thing specifically made for removing 'blemishes' haha. my step mom has a black 02 monte carlo ss and she slid across a white car that her back bumper, and my dad just rubbed it out with that stuff.lo

acetone(nail polish remover) and or a clay bar. If you use acetone, remember to wash off the left over residue, you dont want it to dry onto the paint.

Clay bar will usually do the job, but just make sure u clean off the clay bar every few rounds...

if that doesn't work, and depending on the thickness of the leftover paint that was embedded. Go ahead and use a plastic razor blade, but keep in mind that the plastic razor blade can ONLY be used on flat surfaces.

If the above 2 doesnt' work, go aheand and step it up with a a cleaning compound, like DACP or a very light cleaner wax.

If all the above doesn't work, move into a rubbing compound with a Random Orbital Buffer.

Any brands of rubbing compound to recommend? I stopped by Walmart last night and all I found is a Turtle Wax rubbing compound which describes itself as a heavy duty cleaner and I wondered if it'd be too harsh.

Don't use that Turtle Wax Crap. Get some Meguiars fine cut or a 3M product. Pep Boys has both of these, or order it right from the company website.

Always start out with the least agressive compound when removing scratches, scuffs etc. Move on to a heavier cut until you get the desired result.
You can purchase 3M products directly from their website.
