Question Spray paint removal

Hello, I ran over a can of spray paint which spattered the side of my car. Does anyone know how to remove this without hurting my paint job?
Thank you, Michael

Take some denatured alcohol and try rubbing it off. It will take some elbow grease, but it should come off.

I have used WD-40 to do this and the sooner you do it the better.

I use a clay detailing bar for overspray
Many auto detailing companies make them
(I use Mother's myself)
You'll need to follow the instructions, and use the detailing spray they recommend along with it

If you've got a lot on there, you may want to try the other methods first
Then use the clay for what's left (if anything)

...and yeah the sooner the better

Paint takes a while to cure - if you let it cure, you won't be able to remove it without taking the paint underneath as well.
