How to remove paint overspray on engine?

Just got my car back from the body shop, and noticed paint spray all over the engine. I'm pretty disappointed in the overall service and job, so I definitely don't feel comfortable taking it back to where it was done. Is there any specific product that might remove it from the plastic components without damaging them? Thanks for any advice!

You can make use of a detailing clay in removing overspray of a panel.

The best thing to do is to return it to the body shop
