    How do you remove the after residue of bird droppings?

    Hey everyone,
    How do you remove the after residue of bird droppings? I can get the main stuff off, but there is always a remaining outline on the car from the bird ****. I tried turtlewax's bug and tar remover, but I've had no luck with that. Does anyone else have any better advice???

    thanks,
    Derek

    Baking soda and water is what I've always used....it works well too if you have any clear coat damage that cannot be handled with a rubbing compound.

    Do you need to be careful with it? Can it do damage if taken to extremes?

    The wife's car has an outline like has been described. I hadn't gotten around to really making an effort to be rid of it.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'll try the clay and polish.....although I'm not sure how good I will be with that. I don't want to ruin the paint anymore than subaru did.

    As with any abrasive mixture, you need to be a little careful, but use a microfiber cloth and rub gently with the baking soda in warm water....do it a little bit at a time and check to see if you're making any progress. It takes a while, so be patient, but this worked on the spots of clear coat that were damaged due to bird crap being on the roof for a long time in the sun....it ate right through the clear....all good now though

    actually the chemicals in human saliva work very well.

    just lick it off.

    What kinds of birds are you dealing with?!
    *If you have seen scary movie 2 (please don't make fun of me) think of the bird at the end of that movie, because that is what I picture when I think of the birds that did this to the subes.

    But to stay in topic, I do know that the baking soda/warm water combo works well. This may seem strange, but harley davidson bug/tar remover isn't bad. If you want to have real nice polish after-try Turtle Waxs' new Ice polish. It's amazing.
    I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. That's my nightmare.

    The Ice polish is cool, and good for a quick job, but like most liquid waxes, I woudln't use it as a primary wax. You really need a decent paste wax for that.

    hey derek, here's a suggestion:

    spend less time worrying about bird crap

    spend more time trying to get your lonely brother his car cause he's dying for fun

    make sure our dear father doesn't screw anything up
