    Yep gonna have to a strong mis using a de-greaser or TFR if you have one to remove all the grease and give the paint a good clean and wax/seal.

    Just use a normal shampoo it'll lift it, shouldn't use washing up liquids they are salty and scratch, but they also will lift it off.

    I would have thought a good shampoo would get it off. I would try that first.

    It's alright to use fairy liquid on the very odd occasion, and I mean very odd occasion as it actually wears down the lacquer. Personally wouldn't though.
