    How about a watering can with a touch of shampoo and a nice soft microfiber? Should help to soften the poo, and remove most of the grit before you wipe it off. And finish it off with a quick spray of quick detailer.

    Nedd to counter the acid in the poo.It WILL burn through the top coat if left.And it depends on what the little phukers have been eating.Berries mean more acid.I keep a tin of supagard bird lime neutraliser in the boot.Its the only supagard product thats any good the rest is shhit.But this foam is pretty good.A squirt and a damp cloth on top as soon ass you find it.job done.If its pigeons, get an air gun

    my way i keep a bottle of QD in my car along with a micro fibre cloth (in a sealed bag) at all times so if i do get one i quickly clean it off then clean the cloth once dry put it back in its sealed bag for the next time one of the little blighters does one on my paint

    Ideally the best way if you can is to use warm water on a Microfibre and leave it on the area to allow the cloth to soften the poo, then wipe off.

    Alternatively as Fran has mentioned plenty of quick detailer on the area or on you mf to soften then wipe away

    usually if possible i clean it off before it dried so its just a case of a little squirt of QK then a wipe with the micro fibre but if it has dried then i leave the QD on there for a short while it usually softens it easy enough to wipe off , that is where my OCD comes through lol got to clean it off asap lol

    The warm cloth is also a good technique to use on insects on the front of the car, wing mirrors etc....saves using bug remover than can sometimes strip off the protection
