Cleaning minor exterior spots on the go - any suggestions

As we all know - once in a while you end up with a bird dropping, bug spattered, or other spots on your car. Any suggestions for cleaning them up quickly while on the go? Ideally I could carry some presoaked wipes that I use that would not leave residue.

Thanks

Get Optimum No Rinse, and a few MF towels.

That's a good route. I would say pick up a waterless wash and use that. If you get one with wax in it then you'll leave the area with some protection as well

This is what I use. I have optimum no rinse in a spray bottle at quick detail dillution. Make sure you really soak the spot before wiping with a microfiber. The lubrication and microfiber will keep the marring to a minimum. Do not wipe anywhere that was not sprayed.
