My white Corolla sat outside up north, then sat outside a year in Florida. It's got a lot of gray mildew (I was told it's mildew) spots. Some areas are covered.
I bought a rubbing compound and cleaned 1/2 the hood. But there's a slight orange cast to it now. I got two prices to clean it and both were $100. I don't mind doing it myself if I can find some kind of agent to help.
I suppose not waxing it didn't help, but I had a tough job at the time and didn't have the mental energy to think about the car.
Is there something for car finishes that wouldn't scratch the paint?
edit: wondering if a little baking soda paste would work and not scratch the paint?
