Removing overspray

So I noticed there is some over spray on my passenger side door. What do I need to get rid of this? it's like a foggy appearance on my black car.

Try using a clay bar & lubricant.

I just got done doing my whole car and I used mothers clay bar which costs like $20 at walmart. It is slick as glass now. Just make sure the car is clean and dont drop it on the ground. The clay bar that is....The effort you have to apply will be determined by how much is on the paint. You have to wax the car when you are done as you also remove the wax as well.

I must also add this product is good for overspray from something getting painted nearby and getting on the car. This isnt for fisheyes or poorly painted/oxidized panel.

Just take your time, use lots of lubricant and good technique.
