Husband parked the car under a lamp post and birds have kindly peed all over the roof. He's asking how to clean this please?

Hey,

The best option is to use Autoglym cleaning product and they even have their own Softop cleaner. They are known for their amazing cleaning abilities! So you could do that then hose it all down and that should do the trick
Hope that will help.

Thanks
