Does your car go to the birds? Are your local tweets putting shit on the convertible top of your car day after day? Don’t despair, let me explain how to clean it. You see, a lot of people who have convertible tops flinch when they see bird droppings on top, but I always remind them that it’s good that the convertible top was up, because had it been down, that bird shit would have been in their seats, on the board. , center console and floorboards.
Worse still, they might go back to find that the car now has a nest that has been built under its seat. Still, you should never let birds ruin a perfectly good day. And luckily, there are a couple of tricks of the trade for cleaning bird droppings from convertible tops.
Also, you should realize that it is much easier to clean bird droppings from the convertible top, and then from your car paint, once those bird droppings have dried. Here are some tips for cleaning it all up on your own without taking it to a professional car wash or auto detail shop;
– First, you must loosen the bird droppings and moisten them so that they come off without damaging the fabric. I know you’re saying “Oh yuck”, but stay with me for a moment while I explain this to you. To moisten the bird shit, I recommend a garden hose with a spray nozzle and some warm soapy water in a bucket.
– Next, take a dishwashing sponge, the kind that has abrasive on one side and a sponge on the other. Use the soft side of the sponge first and try to wash most of it off, then flip it over and without applying too much pressure move the abrasive side of the sponge back and forth over the bird, letting it fall along with the fiber of the cloth. .
– You will notice that this removes most of it, sometimes everything. If not, repeat this step several times. Do not go in and use too much pressure to scrape it off as it can permanently damage or scar the fabric.
This is how the best auto detailers do it, and some of them have foam sprays that help dissolve bird droppings. However, this technique amounts to the same thing and generally it always works. Consider all of this.
