    a good soak with warm soapy water will help soften it up......then a normal wash

    I have used a quick detailer before and its worked quite well. Sprayed on the plop quite close and then let it soak for a minute and wipe and buff up. The other thing I have used is a Non Water Car Wash which is a cleaner wax type thing and did the same as the quick detailer and that worked ok too and NO scratches

    I soak a large piece of kitchen roll in warm water, I then gently work it into the pooh (ooh err), leave for a min or two then sponge off then go and have something to eat. Done this for years, never noticed any scratches. I once was on holiday at a seaside place in UK, the seagulls poohed all over the paint work, sunbaked on by the time I got home and had attacked the paintwork. Luckily the car was 8 years old but I am very diligant now at removing them. Problem is, the old lady next door is kind to nature and flings bread out her window every day for the birds. I have an army of cats though just waiting to pounce but thats another story........
