fine swirls in tuxedo black

Hi there guys, I jsut thought I would warn you guys so you can learn form my mistake. I will start by saying I have a 2012 SEL tuxedo black. I wash it by hand when weather permits. In the winter I will take it to a basic touchless car wash to get the salt off of it. The other day I noticed the infamous fine swirl marks in my cc. I couldnt figur eout where they came from, then it finally dawned on me.... Here is where you can learn from my mistake. NEVER, under any circumstances use a ice scraper with the snow brush on it to clear snow off your hood, roof and deck lid. I never thought those bristles would be hard enough to scratch the clearcoat. Now I gotta spend a whole day washing, claying,buffing and waxing it. Lesson learned the hard way
