Can eggs take off car paint?

The yolk contains fatty acids and is responsible for the fat, cholesterol and most of the calories found in an egg. The chemical composition of the egg yolk will eat through clear coat on the surface of car paint–in addition to staining the paint–if not removed from the surface of the paint immediately.

Similarly one may ask, why do eggs ruin car paint?

Egg shells break relatively easily, and when thrown at high velocity, the shells will shatter into sharp shards. The shards of the shells can cause superficial scratches to the surface of the protective clear coat on a car and, in some cases, penetrate the clear coat, scratching the paint.

Also, can raw eggs damage car paint? It can permanently damage the paint job and if you don't discover the egg before it dries, getting it off of the car is going to be a big job. In addition, the impact of the egg may chip the paint. The damage will need to be repaired and the egg will need to be removed as soon as possible.

In this way, how long does it take for egg to damage car paint?

Believe it, Derek! If you're still dubious, break an egg on your own car, let it sit for 48 hours, and tell us what you believe then :-) An egg will absolutely damage a car's paint (or anything else's paint).

Is egging illegal?
