Rubbing Compound Recommendation

Hi..am new to the forum, and not much of a do it yourself-er. Here's my problem: while backing out of my garage yesterday (in a hurry), the side of my right front bumper made acquaintance with the garage door frame, leaving no dent but plenty of paint marks on the bumper. Is there a compound someone recommends to remove this paint?

Thanks

This is house paint? Try WD-40 first, with a terry towel. If that doesn't do it, I've used "Goof Off" to get paint abd adhesives off of shiny surfaces like counters and cars. It won't hurt the paint as long as you don't rub extremely hard.

I have had good luck just using a cleaner wax with a little elbow grease, on minor paint rub offs. Just cleaned a white smear from some one's door off my dark blue beater today.

Thanks for the tips. I ended up using Armor-All foaming cleaner, and a damp rag. Got the most obvious paint off, and I think the remainder will buff out when we next get the Camry detailed. I appreciate the quick responses!
