Help Removing Sunscreen Oil Marks From Paint ?

Anyone got any advice on how to remove fingerprints/hand marks (sunscreen oil residue) from the paint on a black car ?

It's been washed a few times but that hasn't helped.

That has made an improvement but it hasn't completely removed it. Also I should mention that paraffin was used & that didn't remove it either.

Sunscreen is one of those things which can be quite tricky to remove. Sometimes an All Purpose Cleaner which is agitated with a brush can do the job. If that fails then it is possible the sunscreen had etched the paint in which case you will need a polish.

IPA wipe down? If not then a clay and polish.

I had this on my leather door cards. an absolute nightmare to get off, in the end warm soapy water, wd40 and loads of air freshners.

WD40 is a remarkable product it's great at removing a whole host of things including tar from carpets etc plus it's safe on paintwork within reason.
