Sonax Full Effect does a good job. Megs Wheel Brightner is an acid based one so be careful with that. If it doesn't get it all off the first time, reapply it a couple more times. If those don't work, try to clay it off. If that doesn't work, get a microfiber towel and some aggressive compound and buff it off. It will take a while to get it all out by hand with compound so don't get discouraged.

Your other option is to wet sand the area with some 1000-1500 grit paper, then 2000 grit paper, and then buff it off with compound and polish. Use this as a last resort though.

Before and afters for example:
