    I live in Northern Illinois, My car is one year old so no rust, however yesterday i washed it and found hundreds of orange/rust colored specks all over the car. Is this from the salt/anti ice treatment that is spread by the highway dept ? And how can I remove them? I tried bug/tar remover spray and with a lot of rubbing it eventually comes off but I can’t do that to the entire car there are too many spots.

    • Dave says:

      The orange/rust colored specks all over the car is called “rail dust”, which is an old term which originated back when cars were transported via open train cars, and when the rail cars went along the tracks it kicked up metallic dust which adhered to the cars. Now it comes from brake dust and snow plows.

      I would recommend using a clay bar and a lubricant to remove it. You will find it much easier (and safer) than using bug/tar remover and a lot of rubbing.
