Did you have a good coating of wax on it though? If so that should help preventing them from sticking but using that big remover will then take the wax coating off of the bodywork

Nope only washed it with autoglym conditioner.I don't wax my car religiously as for me I don't think it needs it often.it's been waxed once since having him. I know some people do it too often but it's down to user,
