2013 sahara rear bumper stain

Any ideas as to what, why and how to remove the stain??? I have seen many pics online with the same stain. Coming from the spare tire I believe...

I do believe someone on another thread said bug and tar remover takes it right off.

It pretty much washes right off. Another option..get rid of the silver cover. 3rd option...buy a new bumper.

Wash the tire thoroughly and clean the bumper with rubbing alcohol.

I get this... takes a little elbow grease, but comes off with a micro fibre cloth and a typical paint cleaner like Maguires.

Our 2013 Sahara had spots on the bumper for the first few months. They weren't like those in the OP's pic, where they were running down the side, just on top. The high pressure wand at the car wash took them off each time. I haven't seen any spots on it lately.

I get that too. Some Windex will take it right off.

Mine had that too for the first few months I owned it. I used a clay bar and some spray wax to remove it.
