    I used scotchbrite and white spirit to remove the paint then some rubbing compound on a damp cloth to get rid of any superficial scratches. Then applied some autoglym SRP to get the shine back.

    Don't get any on your teeth!! They say brake fluid is really bad for paint, but I've seen it spilled on paintwork before, and left for about 20 mins and did nothing.
