purple bird poop on grey soft top

Detailing project going well. Thought I was far enough away from the robin's nest, but small purple spots proved otherwise. Thoughts on safe clean up? (Don't want to ruffle the feathers of the fabric!)

Use a stiff stream of water and a soft tooth brush.
NO detergent, that means if you go to a car wash don't get any soap on the
fabric top. Detergents attract dust which leads to the fabric breaking down.

Order some Raggtopp Cleaner and a bottle Raggtopp Protectant and
use a dedicated OXO feather tip brush.

and avoid parking under trees whenver possible. Last week I spent a long time cleaning the car, parked it under a tree in Supermarket parking lot for only 30 minutes minutes and the car was full of tree sap and bird bombs.

Sound advice from Perfectlap

I had some goose droppings (I think) on my black top, went and did exactly that, stream of water on it, then used the Porsche Tequipment top cleaner and a toothbrush.....minutes later, no stains at all!
