Question Best way to clean the grime off the paint from behind the back tires?

I have a bunch of Zaino products (I got that total car care kit), but I am not sure of the best way to clean off the grime on the paint behind the back tires. I want to make sure I don't do something wrong that would damage or scratch the paint.

I would say before you do anything. Do a Dawn wash then use the Zaino. Follow the directions that come with the Zaino products.Only do the dawn wash once, then the Z7 wash. Should work.

Strips the wax off.. Very harsh and will eventually dry out rubber and etch clearcoat.

Use auto wash soap.
