Wow that's surprising, it got the oil off of beavers in Prince William sound just before the Orca Killer Whales ate them.

There is a product called wax and silicone remover. Get it at Automotive paint stores. Will remove without hurting the paint.

Not for the beavers!

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

Still, I'm sure the Orcas appreciated your efforts....

I've had good results with quick detailing spray as well as WD40 especially on older paint/single stage.
