    The Mrs decided to spray door handle slides with wd40.

    Excess has run down the doors! And after two washes is still visible!

    Any ideas on getting it off,with out harming the paint!

    If its not shifted after a few washed, try a paint cleanser like Dodo Juice lime prime, I think Meguires also do a similar product as part of their 3 step system (not sure on that).

    If you have AG Super Resin Polish lying around I'd reach for that first................
