removing the rough spots


Explanation:
Como los otros han dicho, es difícil star seguros, pero lo poco que acabas de agregar me hace pensar que se refiere al uso de rozar como remover según indica el DRAE, en este caso del carácter áspero.
Rozar
Raer o quitar una parte de la superficie de una cosa, como de la pared, del suelo, de la piel, etc.
Hope it helps!
