    Any ideas on how to get dried egg off a truck?

    so i'm not the most observant person in the world. i just noticed my truck got egged back on the bed on the drivers side (really not observant). it is quite dried on. it's a good thing i don't care that much how it looks...i guess

    so i googled it and found some suggestions but i was wondering if anyone has any real-world success stories before i try wiki-how advice.

    DeusDingo I've found the blood of the devil that egged your truck works well. Their body parts also make for good scrubbers, espcially if they are still alive to do the elbow work.

    Eggs will stain paint, so while most residual dried on egg can be removed with soap and water, you will need to contact a body shop to determine if the paint is damaged or not. you might be able to have the affected parts simply wet rubbed and refinished, but if it got down to the paint.... SOL.

      I have found, on my vehicles, cigarette lighter fluid, i.e., Ronson, or Zippo, takes off even stubborn stuff like road tar.

    I called a friend of mine that owns a paint and body shop. He said use Dawn dish soap, get the water real soapy and scrub with a microfiber towel really well. If it does not come off you'll need to take it to a paint shop. He said he's seen bird poop and even spit eat through paint if left on too long. Good luck.

      If its really stuck do as above and soak the microfiber towel or two and leave it on the area to hopefully soften it up.

      Someone egged our house once and took off down the block just as our Dad was walking home from work. Nabbed the perp and had him wash the area and then walked him home to have a little chat with his Father.

        Try bug & tar remover. With just about anything you choose to use, you're likely going to have to scrub for awhile.

          Dawn dish soap works really well but you'll need some elbow grease and patience. I had lot's of practice after someone didn't like my RV parked at home and multi egged it every night for about a week.

            Probably will have to get it painted. The proteins in the egg bind with the paint molecules when left to dry. Only hope is to get it off while still wet. The next step is to catch the little dears that threw the eggs so their parents can pay for the paint job.

                i guess i got lucky. the eggs must not have been that old because i took a way over concentrated bucket of soapy water (3 caps of soap? naw, 1/3 of bottle should work) and i soaked some rags and used those over and over and over again on the egg and it eventually came off.

                thanks for all the advice, i'm glad it wasn't worst-case-scenario.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                Placeholder

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
