Bird droppings...
I have a couple bird stains on my car. I've been told rubbing compound would help remove it. Does anyone know if that's true or if there's another way?

Yeah Pressure washer at the Local carwash works wonders. Gets them damn pesky bugs off too..

Is it really a problem? Did bird in question crap on your car 9 months ago and your car has been in the sun ever since?

Worse case just use Bug and Tar remover smile

I sware we have fugging condors where I live, Most mornings I have to spray off my windshield just to do to work. Its never the rest of the car, just the Windshield.

I hate bird droppings!

But water works wonders. Just cleaned about 10 bird dookies today. Nasty ass birds!

Claybar gets them (the stains) out, and is easier on the paint than rubbing compound.

Use regular soap and water to get the big stuff off first, then claybar the stains.

Plain water should be fine. Failing that, soap and water. If that doesn't work... rubbing alcohol.

Rubbing compound?! Why not just use sand paper? tongue

i think most of you are thinking that i'm talking about the bird crap itself. i meant the stains that it leaves after washing it off.

there was shit on my fender at work while it sat in the sun as soon as i got home to wash it off, it was too late. i guess ill try that tar remover.

yea, you should remove bird dropping as soon as possible, because the droppings has some tip of acids in it, further damaging the paint.

Ah, okay. That makes much more sense. I thought you were trying to basically wash your car with rubbing compound. rofl

Try some rubbing alcohol, seriously. That stuff is non-abrasive but removes pretty much anything. If that fails, try just waxing it with something good like Mother's... or clay bar. thumbsup

And that at a high concentration.
Get it off your car ASAP.
No doubt keeping a good wax job on your car helps.

lol. Well since bird droppings not only contain fecal matter, it also contains their urine. I just spray it off with water. I guess waxing it often also helps.
