Bird dirt

Hello to my fellow alfa owners.

An annoying bird decided to use the roof of my spider as a litter tray, unfortunately I didn't notice it for a couple of days and now I am having trouble removing the mess.

I have even tried the auto glum specific wipes for bird dirt but no success (although in their defense I think it's meant for bodywork and not a cloth roof).

Anyway it's getting very very very annoying now I guess I need some kind of brush to really remove it because soap and water is just not doing the job and no matter how hard I try I can still see what the bird had for dinner a week ago...

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I used to use Renovo on my soft tops, but first, get a wet sponge and leave it on the stain for an hour to break it up.

Scrubbing with a brush works, but it leaves a light patch.

If a sponge or baby wipes doesn't work, get some Renovo and clean the whole roof.
