    Exterior spot cleaning

    So I walked out to my car this mornin to find that my neighbors cat decided that my hood was the best place to sleep last night. The cat left muddy/dirt paw prints all over the hood that I want to get rid of. I would rather not have to wash the entire car as its 12 degrees out. What's the best way to get rid of the spots without scratching the paint?

    well, if it's 12 degrees out, snowing on it and then melting will eventually get rid of it. Otherwise you could get a gallon jug, fill it up with whatever car wash you use, pour a little on at a time so when you pour it again it unfreezes and then fill up the same jug and rinse it. Of course, you could just got for a ride or let the car warm up and the hood likely isn't going to freeze from the engine and turbo heat. All sorts of ways you could do it, someone else may have a better idea. I'm in Md and it was 65 degrees today... pretty nice jump from everyday in the 30's I think.

    That's a good idea, plus it gives me a excuse to drive around more on Saturday

    I would suggest a self car wash place, but with mud and such, you really don't want to blast pressure on it, as it can cause paint marring with the dirt getting blasted across the already thin and crappy subaru paint.
