Removing bird poop ad-hoc

What should I keep in the car to remove the occasional bird poop? I'm using Mothers QD right now but was wondering if there is something better to use for this.

I miss the parking deck at my old job. 3 levels underground and about 68 degrees year-round. :(

anything that will get it off.. normal spray on wax cleaners will be fine along with a cloth. if its really baked on there then something stronger like a bug and tar remover will do

My plastidipped hood stripe got decorated by a seagull. All I used was some warm water and a clean rag.

Baked-on goodies should be addressed with clay-bar... the bug & tar products give you a false-sense of security; and they don't work that great anyways.

DOVE liquid hand soap and warm water (to lubricate the surface and clay). It also won't deteriorate the clay, moisturizes your hands, and has no solvents so it won't eat the wax up either.

But quick wax and a MF cloth is always a great idea to have in the car!!!

I use Meguire's quik detailer and a mirco cloth to spot spray and clean my white car which loves little fly and bird poop and tree sap and anything else.
