do you carry a spray bottle for small spots like bird shi...

i can't decide on what a better option for a small quick fix would be. i was thinking ONR but chemical guys has a few waterless options.

any suggestions or thoughts if it's not for the full car and just a quick fix spray bottle to carry with you?

i did a few searches but not too much popped up in regards to this specific question. at least within the last several years which means there are new opinions available. thanks!

I have goo-gone, a bottle of water, and some microfiber towels in the trunk for the occasional dive bombers.

I use Poorboys World Spray & Wipe Waterless Wash. I bought a huge jug of it on ebay for $38 w/free shipping. I leave a 16 oz bottle in the trunk with a bunch of microfiber towels. Every few days I like to give wheels a quick spray and wipe down... works perfect for me.

Most rinseless or waterless product will work when the bird bomb is fresh. I switched to PoorBoy's world Bird Sh#t Remover several months back. This stuff works really well.

Adam's detail spray is about the best all around spray that I have used, I feel like I have tried them all. My neighbors think I'm insane I'm sure

Greetings,

First of all, please ensure you have a good coat of wax on your car. Second, carry (I personally like) Griot's Garage Speed Shine or Spray Wax and a few microfiber and disposable cotton towelettes in your trunk (plenty of room...I also carry glass cleaner). Third, remove immediately. And finally, there are certain "drop zones" in parking lots...under trees, under lights, etc. just look at the parking lot and you'll see the "previous bombs" - avoid them if possible.

Did I mention a good coat of wax?

Damn, didn't even know there was such a thing; thought you were facetiously referring to water or something LMAO. I'd buy the "Poorboy's World Bird Sh#t remover" just for the name!

In all seriousness, I hardly kept any cleaner products in any car I've owned unless it's the day of a car meet or something, but I usually break it down with Goo-Gone and a quick layer of wax once I'm home.

I carry Poorboys Spray & Wipe. I trust it more than Spray & Gloss, OID, or Adam's in terms of lubricant. The only other I'd consider is Optimum No Rinse.
