Heat Gun on fender flares

Can someone please explain this to me? I guess I am stupid b/c I could not understand how to do it off of another thread that talked about it. Triple88 explained some good techniques to use but I did not understand the basic concept of what you actually do. Any help for me would be appreciated.

Hold the heat gun so it blows its extremely hot air against the plastic flare (don't get TOO close) which melts the very top surface enough to get rid of the white splotches for a while. Once you see the surface get a little wet looking move on so you don't burn a hole through and keep the heat gun moving. It's easier done than described, just try it. It's not permanent though, the splotches will come back later since it's still the same fade-prone plastic it was.
