I would take a few drops of quality car wash, undiluted, and let it set on the stain for several minutes, and then rub it lightly with a warm damp cloth and wipe it off and see how that does. If that doesn't work, try the same thing a dish soap. If it's cold out, mix up a warm strong solution of either and see if that helps. If you want to use a stronger all purpose cleaner, spray some on a soft microfiber cloth and wipe it gently, but test it in an inconspicuous area first.

Generally speaking, you can lightly clay and polish the clear bra material. Use mild polishes as the material does not respond exactly like paint, and a mild plastic polish with some finesse may get rid of what may be an impregnated stain -- then again, it may not.

The maker should have included some care information, but generally it's one of several 3M materials that are used -- some are softer than others.

On a regular basis, we use Mothers FX SynWax on the cars at work that have clear bras -- a ZR1 and a Porsche GT3 among others. FX SynWax has synthetic polishes and is completely safe. You might also try FX Spray Wax before a road trip.

Try the least-aggressive method first, as attempting to remove the stain with a polish may leave a result worse than the stain itself, so be careful.
