    getting rid of bird poop

    At work, I can only park in uncovered area on roof top. NO matter where I park, I always have bird dropping on my car. What is best way to get rid of it? Do I use towel, water ?????

    I would use QD, or UQD (or the Pro/Detailer versions if you want to buy in bulk).

    Spray the poop a lot... spray your towel, and try to dab, massage, fling, whatever to get it off gently.

    I follow Mike's recommendations, as in Bill's link above: clay, QD, MF towel soaked with water.

    It might be worthwhile to buy a car cover for when you park outside.

    You really want to get the bird poop ASAP... same day, right away, etc.

    + 1 on what Mat said.

    If you have a sacrificial layer of wax protection it will also slow down the etching process.

    Re: getting rid of bird poop

    I am a little bit confuse. I read to get rid of bird poop, use clay bar and use quick detailer. I got rid of it today by doing my weekly wash. Should I have used clay bar instead? I had to use the microfiber towel with the gold class wash soap to scrub it off lightly.

    This bird poop on my car is almost every other day. It doesn't matter where my car is parked on the top level, birds love to poop on my yellow Mini. I don't seem to see it on other cars.

    The quick detailer...is this the one you use with the clay bar package?
