NEed Help: Sponge ate some paint

Hey whats up fella's.

I read a few of the 'scratches' posts however I did not find anything exactly the same.

I recently (like an idiot) used a sponge on my car which is a kitchen scrubbing sponge with a scotch brite abrasive side on it. I had a few dried up bugs that were hard to remove and so i took this sponge to my paints grave... Luckily I noticed it happening fairly quickly and only have about 3 minor spots to fix..

The scratches are not very deep, however definitely are noticeable when you get close.

What is the best way to fix my paint without going to the detailer? Are there any products that you guys would recommend/where to get them?

Has anyone else done this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

soooo mad that this happened!!
