Default Birdpoop from hell

Hello all, thanks in advance for reading

I left my car in a parking garage for the past month while I was out of town...and returned to find a massive bird crap on my hood. As far as I can tell, its been baked on for at least 2 weeks.

I've tried soaking it with a towel and soap for an hour to no avail.

Anyone have some advice?

Go be gone or bug and tar remover may work I also suggest using some baking soda during and after removal to kill off the stomach acid that is left behind. It can damage paint if not properly neutralized.

If there is any hazing on the paint once you scrub the stuff off, any basic car polish and a little elbow grease to bring a nice shine back to the paint.

Haha, sounds like a lot of deployment stories I've heard. The seagulls seem to love targeting those abandoned cars like nothing else. I dont know what everyone uses, but I know they end up polishing every chance they get.
