Removing M83 spray off mirror

I was too lazy to tape off the truck and I slung M83 all over the passenger side mirror, Ive sprayed it down with QD and rubbed the hell out of it but it still comes back, then I sprayed it down again and used some clay from my stock and it took some of it off but its still A LOT there.... any help or tricks?
