Clean as soon as possible
Don't waste any time before removing the egg. If the egg sits for very long -- especially in the sun -- it can irrevocably damage your car's paint job.
Pick out the shell
Pick the eggshell out of the mess with your fingers. If some pieces are too small, gently wipe them away using a clean, soft towel.
Wipe off the mess
Wipe the remaining egg and yolk off with another clean, soft cloth. Be careful not to apply too much pressure in case you missed any shell particles.
Make a water and vinegar solution
Mix a solution of two cups warm water and two cups white vinegar in a bucket and soak another towel in the solution.
Apply the solution to the egg
Apply the soaked towel to the egg stain and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove the towel
Remove the towel and wash away any residue with a clean towel soaked in clean, warm water. If the stain is still there, get a new towel and reapply the solution.
Review your insurance policy
If the stain won't come out, your paint job may be permanently damaged. Review your insurance policy to see whether vandalism is covered.
