Default Washer fluid damage..grrrr

Well, overnight my washer nozzle decided it wanted to leak. I normally drain all the fluid out & refill with Evian spring water. But neglected to do so on this car..why, I dunno. I forgot to, because I hardly ever use it.
Well it came back to bite me in the butt. I tried to get it off. First I washed it, & then tried to use a dryer dice. Is there anything I can use to get this off? I may take it up with the dealership & get it repainted under warranty, if I cant get it off.
I havent done anything but what I said, as I dont want to maek it worse by doing soemthing I shouldnt. I havent had to deal with something like this in years.
Any ideas as to what might get it off.
All I can say now is, I just drained it ALL & refilled with the Evian now..but a little to late, i guess.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Expresso, try any of these methods/ Paint cleaner/cleaner wax /clay bar, the last one I'm sure will work, if the first two don't. Gary

Thank you for the reply.
I used my Meguiars paint cleaner & it removed 99% of it. I cant really scrud also today, because I spent 6 hours yesterday cleaning the inside & outside( yes including the door jambs). So i'm quite sore.
But considering I didnt have to scrub hard at all, I should beable to get the rest off tonight. The only thing that is left is about 4" of the outline of the stain.

Thanks again.
